Perhaps I wasn’t clear enough
when I slipped between the silken sheets
to nestle in the comfort of your arms (heaven).
Perhaps my sighs were too soft to be heard
as you caressed me, your strong yet gentle
hands on my body.
Perhaps I did not display my feelings strongly enough
for the arousal
your touch never failed to achieve.
Perhaps my kisses returning yours
weren’t fulsome enough in their moist firmness,
as I lost myself in the passion of the moment.
Perhaps I never let you know what I thought
… that I would die with pleasure
as with erotic playfulness you would
bring me to a blissfully sensual release.
Perhaps, as I lay in the warmth
of your embrace
in the glow of aftermath.
I didn’t whisper loud enough
“I love you”.
So perhaps you never knew
the depth of feeling
I had for you,
?Oops there goes the ol’ creative muse sneaking out again, hope you enjoyed. Passion is a good thing, it is a sadness that too frequently things that were so perfect in the night cannot resolve the problems of the day! So true today, for many couples!

Then her love for him was surely missed,
which is rather sad having shared such a
sweetness between each other.
In the ecstasy something was lost, and alas
it was his failure not to realise how much she
This is a very nice
piece of writing my friend 🙂
Thanks Andro, but as the next few follow up’s show I think I’ve created a bit of a (pleasurable monster) in that the followers want more of this type of writing. About what you said however, regarding this piece, yes this was a truth, sigh! But life goes on my friend! 🙂 xx
This happens to me too, I added some romantic scripts a while ago and everyone liked them, and asked me for more of the same.
I hadn’t realised that this piece was a truism but I do know that where one man fails there is always a chance to feel the realness of love and passion with another. Someone special I mean, I am sorry if I am being too familiar, it is just my thoughts working overtime.
Have a lovely rest of afternoon and evening Penny 🙂
You also Andro, thanks so much for your thoughts, I appreciate them. I’m a realist too, but stay hopeful. You also have a pleasant evening and night! 🙂 xx
I am enjoying your writing, to be honest I need to start exploring more than I do, as usually these days I tend to miss out on some truly excellent posts from so many of my friends. It is just not good enough, and so I will definitely try harder from now on 🙂
Mr. Naughty, aka Andro xx Just kidding
You’re writing is good, I ‘m hopeful you will write more, Andro aka Mr. Naughty, (eyebrow lifting here about the just kidding part! lol) 🙂
No ’tis true I am jesting,
indeed butter would not melt…
Okay so I am a bit of a rogue
but friendly, and with politeness
being my authenticity I will be
good 🙂 😉 lol
Beautifully passionate, Penny 🙂
Thank you Celestine! 🙂
If there are the ‘right’ words to describe this, I am not capable of them at this juncture. I will start with splendiferous and dynamite though.
Those work quite well, thank you SteJ!
I adore a well-done love poem, and this is that. The plaintive quality is so universal, I think, and yet so uniquely expressed. You are multi-faceted my dear, and i suppose that is no surprise–but it is “news” to me, and I love it. I love fleshing out my “characters”, hehe, and well, there is some flesh here…:)
Thanks, don’t we all have these types of feelings bottled up inside us. Yes, “fleshing out…” an excellent thing, lol! 🙂
Steamy, dreamy, fabulously delicious, that passionate muse of yours. 🙂
Yeah, she gets a bit carried away sometimes (in a good way, I think)! 🙂

Very nice. Dreamy and lovely.
Thank you Amber, much love to you, xo
This is wonderful Penny, all those things possibly unsaid. One of my favourites that you have done. Love to you xx
Thank you, Ruth, my muse with a message (hey that’s almost lyrical, lol) much love to you, xo
Wow! This took my breath away. I’m not a poetry person (I’ve never figured out how to read poetry) but this spoke to my heart so powerfully and I read it several times. It is so beautiful. Thank you and your muse.
My pleasure Tez, I try to write from the heart so I’m glad it spoke to yours. xx
This is fantastic, wonderful , superb. and so much truth in it. We often say things in a moment of passion and cannot say it afterwards. Being open and truthful always is the key to a good relationship……..
You are correct Ute, so very true!
Soooh… this is hot… Penny this had me going first thing in the morning… what a blog to start my day.. the love and intimacy of a bedroom scene… I do agree with Robyn this does call for a part two… and what is said in the bedroom can and should be practice outside as well… never a wrong time for an intimate I love you, no matter where or when…
Hi Bulldog, I think I’ve come up with a part two. Well I’ve written it anyway, will see if I post it. And I agree the intimacy should be of shared love and affection both day and night for a happy couple.
Oh your muse has outdone herself with this one Penny ~ Brava — it’s superb …kept me hanging onto each and every word. Oh Yeah – is right — I agree with JB! Outstanding write my beloved friend ~ Perhaps we need part II! Perhaps??? xxxooo RL
Part Duo? Hmmmm! Food for thought or other things, lol! Thank you Robyn! xoxo
Perhaps the problem was not you
Perhaps he was not good enough
Perhaps you should have realised
He was not worthy of your love
I’ll be sure and share that information with the Muse when she returns, she’s running around with her sister muses somewhere right now. She usually knows what’s she’s talking about though! 🙂 xo
Lovely scene you created Penny. No opps allowed. This is humanity at its base 🙂 _Oh and indded you were heard. 😉
Thank you Lesley! Very much! 🙂
You know.. I used this angel shot before. It is very very compelling and honest. I too put it to wanting. “Will you unto my come. Leave wealth and wit behind. Feed my lust and soul with thine. Oh angel give me hope of your sweet lips on mine.”
Well done Lesley, your whole page of wonderful inspiration. We humans can think divine thoughts and when we share them with others, it’s further enhanced, but to experience the divine, yes that would be heavenly indeed! xx
My mouth is wide open … as i giggle … because … I am lost in your love … Thanks for this thrilling poem …
Thank you. The Muse always seem to know where she wants to go, I follow her lead, as I can, lol! 🙂
I lost your style of poems and writings … Smiling … I got caught up in it … As if … It was meant for me … That is the reason … I love poems and love songs … I often get carried away … Thank you so much … Penny … You are a great writer …
Thank you, very much! 🙂
You are welcome … Penny …
That was a bit steamy
True though. People say things in the bedroom they either don’t mean or won’t say anywhere else even if alone. If a man (or woman) can say “I love you” in the bedroom, they should be able to say it outside of there. Not just those words though. There’s many others
Naw, not steamy, dreamy! Human beings are complex and a work in progress while each gender struggles to find balance and purpose in their lives, Alastair. Few get it right. Twice as complex with a partner (but worth the effort)!
I had written a comment but it was difficult to explain what I was trying to say and it seemed a rambly thing, so I gave up and will say that when the head are in alignment, that complexity seems to become more … easier? Less complex?
This is beautiful, Penny. You are so right….passion is a VERY good thing.
Yes it is! I agree, Very!
