Electric Touch

I remember the electricity
when our hands first touched
the newness
the excitement
the taste of the forbidden.

It was a breaking of tension
the end of a game
and the beginning of so much more

As our lips touched
tasting each other
first softly
then firmly
then openly
we watched our inhibitions float away
turning unthinkable thoughts
into heavenly deeds
as our willpower collapsed
in the wind a quivering breath

But as we fade from mortal souls
and slip into a torrent of passion and desire
let's not fool ourselves about forever
nor pretend this is something grand

Let's be in love for one night
so we can watch it fade
when the morning comes

Let's live a lifetime
in these moonlight hours
and never look back in the dawn

Because we both have lives to lead
and our own trails to blaze
and even though tonight we burn for each other
our fire will smolder and die
under the weight of the morning dew

And then we can spend the rest of our lives
forgetting about this night
the night we gave in to an electric touch
and caressed away our deepest desires

    Though I am only 15 years of age and in the eyes of most just a emo teenager that hates their parents I wanted to let you know how much I greatly appreciate your work. I have been reading your work as long as I can remember and can't say that I dislike any one of them. I enjoy writing and find your work very motivating. To me you are a literary genius and I'm sure to anyone else that reads your work and has half a brain feels the same. Well I have wasted your time enough. Thank you.


  24. Samantha says:

    Truly you have an amazing way of reaching people. The poems you write tie into my life (as well as others I'm sure)so perfectly. The way you word things is incredible. I always look to this website and particularly this section whenever I'm feeling depressed, or rejected or whatever. Thank you so much.

  25. Cassie says:

I appreciate your work so much. Ive been reading your poems for a long time and I enjoy everyone of them. I hope that you get the respect you deserve in life.

  44. Shelby says:

    Your poem relates alot to one of my ex-best friends who wants to go back out with this guy who's name is Nick. But he doesn't like her and she is mad at me because we like each other, but aren't going out. Anyway she is obssed with him and wants him to fall in love with her for a least a night when they are all alone.
    Great poem.


  45. Kinkster says:

    It sort of describes the way I felt the first time I met/kissed/fell in love with my FuckToy. Truly a touching poem. SUPERB.

  46. Shelby says:

    Your poetry is helping me get through a lot of tough times. Right now things are not seeming to go my way with people who are close to me, and some of them they are. I really can relate to all of your poetry.
