Midnight Songs


Lips like vermilion rose petals

Glide across the fragrance of silk skin

Kissing soft delights in tenderness

Breathing whispers of desires within


Velvet fingertips delicately trace

Impassioned trails of timeless yearning

As two bodies are braided in love’s flame

Igniting a tenacious burning


Fluttering hearts beat in the night

Of lovers' delightful tryst

Tempting the sun to rise on their love

As hungering lips are kissed


In cadence that sings joyous pleasure

Souls entwine in harmonious vibration

In perfect rhythm of each other

Reaching crescendos of blissful elation



    Hey now, time for sleeping. Us oldsters need rest, not lust.

      Well don't they say the freak comes out at night? Lol! I think "oldsters" need a healthy balance of both sleep and nighttime lovin'! Thanks, as always, for your support, my friend!

      Ooooh - I've come over all funny - super sensuous piece Santita

      • Santita

        Hehe thank you, Michael!

        Santi, you do have a way with words. This beautiful poem is timeless, could have been written a hundred years ago, or yesterday. To me the language feels nearly Victorian on one hand, but totally modern on the other. It has an overwhelming feeling of tenderness. So well written!

        • Santita

          Fred, love that "Timeless''! I often feel like I came from a different time so if my writing has both a Victorian & modern feel to it that's awesome! Thanks for always reading & leaving your fabulous comments, my dear friend!

            A lovely write Santita. I'm afraid for me though, that this describes a horror story - KP, you know! Any 'entwining' will finish me off!heehee.

            • Santita

              No swoon?! I was waited for a full-on Orchidee swoon! Lol

              • orchidee

                The emotion of horror was stronger than that of swooning this time! heehee. If she suggests any 'entwining' I've had it!

                              Excellent chant of passion and blissful Lust. So delicate, yet so intense. A scene from other times. Not vulgar, but simply pure pleasure. Almost a byronian chant of romance and human fragility. Well done. Superb

                              • Santita
