I am a white African. Contradiction in terms? I think not. Sometimes my blog will be serious; sometimes sad; sometimes irreverent; sometimes witty; always my truth simply written.

your lips
caressed mine,
I fell in lust.
Your gentle tongue probed
spots I thought forbidden
as eager hands ignited
and excited virginal flesh
till, aching with desire, I cried YES!

As your lips caressed mine, I fell in lust.

Dectina Refrain – a form of poetry invented by Marion Friedenthal and named by Luke Prater.(To my knowledge this is a style of poem I developed myself circa 2007/2008.  I apologise sincerely for that misconception if it is a form that already exists out there.  It is 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9 syllables and then 1-2-3-4 repeated on a separate line.)

  1. Powerful poem. Hits a peak on the flesh / Yes rhyme. Excellent work. Cheers

  2. ok - now i know what you meant with straight and to the point...smiles

  3. It is a powerful form reinforcing the beginning at the end and bringing it full circle. I don't know if it's original or not but you certainly use it originally. Felt the excitement and the fear. Thanks, Gay @beachanny

  4. Powerful yearning of forbidden desire, given into. Wonderful rhythm.

  5. oh my, "fell in lust" instead of love... the excitement is felt all the way to the end. pretty hot stuff!

  6. So glad that it worked. thanks for commenting.:D

  7. What a beautiful and romantic poem...
    I can hear the kisses...:)
    I am definitely seeing this form for the first time...

  8. What a passionate visual and sultry. I like your rhyming pattern. This sort of reminds me of a nonet except in reverse. Nicely written here.

  9. Yes, The Write Girl, it is similar to a nonet in reverse... I think it is also similar to an etheree except that I only have 9 lines and then repeat the first 4 as the 10th line...

    Glad you enjoyed it.
