Seven Deadly Sins- Lust

Izzi Lynn

your skin glows rose like the blood in your veins. 
you are lonely, so very lonely, 
a flower surrounded by a desert. 
you crave hands on skin
and the fire he lights inside you.
you are consumed by the desire
like a starved man seeking food. 
his touch is like water against your parched lips-
again and again you drown. 
his voice ignites every inch of your skin, 
it is the electrical surge lighting you up from the inside out. 
you, fairy girl of wildflowers and fountains, 
you desire.

    THANKS IZZI ~ Yes LUST ~ because we are HUMAN it is a SIN we are all prone to ! You written it "naturally" from a Female perspective ~ in MY EXPERIENCE ~ Ladies are more often the OBJECT of LUST than the SUJECT ! I love the way you describe the "heat" of "Female Lust" ! You mention LONELINESS at the beginning and DESIRE in the presence of an "available" MALE. All the LADIES in my Circle are not lonely and the majority have a satisfying love life ~ BUT ~ I go on quite a few Residential Science Conferences and Field Courses and one does encounter Lonely & Unloved Females who make the first move ! I am SINGLE but in a stable relationship with ANGELA so in recent years I have enjoyed a drink and a chat etc with "Lustful Ladies" but have NOT reciprocated ! Thanks for an excellent Poem on a provocative subject ~ Yours BRIAN Please add a Poem to the "LOVE IS" Fusion from the lovely CHRISTINA S ~ Thanks B.

      I actually considered writing it from a more gender neutral viewpoint but decided against it. It seemed more impersonal than I was aiming for. Ironically, I'm asexual and have never felt lust. I found writing about it to be a suitable challenge that was rather enjoyable though. Thanks for commenting and sharing!
