For the Smooth Challenge

I could drown inside

the ocean flowing

along the curves and swells

painted across your shorelines

taste the saltwater of your skin,

slip below your smooth surface

and never come up for



Swim in the

pleasure laced with pain

floating from your nails

pressing hard

against my skin

still the water

with the sound

of your breath catching

dive into each one of the red lines

running from my shoulders

Down the smooth arch of my back


Watch your curled

strands of hair

brown streaked with blonde

fall in a waterfall

over my hungry, waiting eyes

let you unravel me

in a forest

of dirty blonde vines

dancing in smooth


Above my beating heart


Lose all sense of time

in the electric charge

lighting the air

between us

say I love you

without saying a word

feel my soul

collide with yours

hear the waves crash

every time

your smooth lips

Touch mine


Forget every truth

other than the spell

your heart has

cast on mine

take my arms away

from the lifeboat

i've been

holding on to,

sink down inside

your smooth sea

go all the way to the

Bottom and just stay


Feel the tide rushing

in the sway of your hips

touch heaven

in the sound of my name

slipping from your lips

disappear in the wind and rain

of your fingers getting

tangled in the sheets

never let go, of the feeling

swirling around this room

lose everything I know

in the smooth afterglow

of you

Next to me


Pick all the petals

from a flower

love me,

love me not

leave only a naked stem

on the smooth ground

walk away, and

think it doesn't matter

which the last was

i'm gonna love you,


love poems

    Beautiful and amazing!

  • This was amazing... well deserving of Top Story! I loved the flower petals & the "Love me, love me not" tie in with the ending... "i'm gonna love you, Anyway" Beautiful, thanks.

    Very sensual. I loved all the nature imagery to show the immensity of the experience as well as the immersiveness (made-up word?) Of losing yourself with someone.
