The touch of the lover on your skin,
Sometimes like silk, sometimes satin!

As your eyes meet, there is an unspoken understanding,
A rare connection and you know it's not just a fling!

Just a glance, that sexy smile creates in you a havoc,
And the butterflies flutter in your stomach!

Words whispered wrapped in shyness, spoken softly yet they probe,
The same tongue which replied, now kisses your ear lobe!

As your lips lock, they unlock waves of emotion,
Hormones racing in your system like a tsunami in an ocean!

As your body is caressed by fingers that tease,
A symphony of love and lust created; and unfulfilled desires release!

The zeal, that unbridled thirst you have for anything which holds your attraction,
Ignited with just a spark; a flame if unattended it burns to its own destruction!

This is what is called Passion; Uff, the word itself resonates with action,
For the wise hath said, "God rests in reason but even HE moves in passion!

  1. Hi Wasim,

    It is never easy to put in words the fleeting sensations of a passion unleashed within. The litmus test is: ‘Do the words resonate with you and make one relive those moments?’

    Your verse has done that wonderfully and I need to acknowledge you for that.

    Keep on writing my friend.

    1. Wow Shakti ji so happy to receive this compliment from you! You have put across your thoughts so well especially in that ‘litmus test’ line. So apt.

      Thank you so much for the love and encouragement.
