Beautiful Bruises

Beautiful Bruises


I cannot keep this

To myself

He said

Then kissed her

Shoulder naked


Indeed twas oh’

So very

Lightly executed     

Then resting pon

His elbows down

He went oh’ so

Very low and slow

Yet far enough

And fair enough

For his chest hair

To brush again the

Small of her back

Precisely where

She liked it


Oh’ lord she cried

I’m overcome

Together then

They smiled

As one

Each knowing  

They had both

Done wrong

Not caring tho

Not even in the


How tho shall we

Each explain

To those who ask

About these

Most beautiful

Of bruises  

No need her lover


Let’s keep them

Sacred to ourselves

And so they did eternal

    • Michael Edwards

      I enjoyed the write

      Memories fade and bruises pale
      but scars remain to tell the tale.

      • Neville

        you are so darn write sir.... many thank you's for considering these words of mine and for helping me to reminisce...

      • MissileOfUncertainty

        This is really raw. It shows a beautiful and intimate exchange. I didn’t want it to end!

        • Neville

          a mere thank you seems such an inadequate response, given the delightfully positive and otherwise, encouraging message you left for me to find here, my friend... bless ya, Neville

        • Fay Slimm.

              Intimacy in the raw. I'm speechless.

              Your memories of a loved one are incomparable. Maybe you'll meet up with her again. 🙂

              • Neville

                you are far too kind and very much appreciated.... thank you my friend...

                • Tamara Beryl Latham - The Poet

                  Some like it wild, but I'm in tune with you.
                  Nothing beats the estacy of a gentle caress.
                  Very pleasing to the sense of imagination

                  • Neville

                    you have more than spoilt me today my friend and I thank you for it and true.... Neville

                      How unmeasurably kind my friend... a delight to hear.... and maybe you were there, at least in spirit....
