Afterglow

Afterglow

A Poem by Phill Oz O'fee
"

Good feelings remaining after a pleasurable or successful experience.

"

Afterglow




A consciousness

from reverberant pleasures

Imputing from

soft sensual gliding fingertips

Piquant vellus

sensitivity to sultry attention

Gives way

to extrasensory wanting lips

As mutual compassion

embraces entwined souls


There has been

no less magnitude of adoration

Over our many

intimate recherché nights

With levels

exceeding our anticipations

Each whispering

moment a total delight

Giving joyousness

beyond our surrenders


In the beginning

we could not imagine

Our love

could ever be so lastingly alive

Especially in

this world of human contradictions

It is especially

poignant we do not need to strive

To achieve

an absolutely abiding afterglow

"It is especially
poignant we do not need to strive"

That love and all its benefits (afterglow) does not have to "strive" is a perfect description of "soul mates". The entire piece is well done and I enjoyed its easy and "lazy river" flow. I hope this couple you wrote it for has read this. How gratifying to them to know that they inspired such eloquent and sincere thought.

"Afterglow" is a brilliant topic to address & you've done it in a way that's unexpected & interesting. Your descriptions tend to be a little bit more cerebral, with your sophisticated word choices, rather than using more raw physical sensations taking in all the senses. This isn't a drawback in this case, just a different way of doing it. Even tho your way of describing is somewhat analytical more than sensory, you do this well and that's why it isn't a drawback. Every woman longs for a man who savors the afterglow as much or more than the grunting & moaning! *wink! wink!*

This is how love should be, of course. The appreciation helps to make the 'abiding afterglow'. Many congratulations for wording the poem, so beautifully.

"We do not need to strive to achieve an absolutely abiding afterglow"- as beautiful as a hibiscus opening every day to the sun. How many of us live to experience this feeling? Rich, sensual imagery and delightful wordage. Transcendent...

You really do use language when you create poetry. You invest vocabulary and display in such fine style, making your words flow gently yet in accordance to the intended mood. '.. Each whispering ~ moment a total delight ~ Giving joyousness.. '
