Skin On Skin

Skin On Skin

A Poem by Rassoul

Two lovers drowning in their hearts.

We are on the same bed
Under the same roof
Loving the hell out of each other
And we got nothing to prove

Your fingers are moving on my chest
Making sure my heart still beats for you
Girl, you're my whole world
After it was dark, it turned to be blue

69 shots of whiskey
And I can't remember anything
Is it lust or love, I can't tell
Is it heaven on earth or we're burning in hell

We're talking and looking at the sky above
But not everything you say is true
And not everything I do for you
Is under the name of love

Interesting...the passion there but a common thread in the final stanza I feel.Takes the reader through many emotions and well voiced...

To my feeble memory, it seems other poems of yours that I've read have been more simply-stated & showing typical love sentiments (a little boring). This, in contrast, is nicely complex & unexpected. There's a harshness in your direct way of stating things that bumps up against the loving sentiments that might be buried within, & I prefer when a love poem is complicated like real life always is. This feels like there's a backload of passion/confusion/indecision/longing behind your words (nicely done!) Fondly, Margie

it has got pace and flows like a dance...
"Is it lust or love, I can't tell
Is it heaven on earth or we're burning in hell"

I liked these words. They dance and move like a song. I liked the energy of the words. You made the reader feel each sentence. Thank you Rassoul for sharing the amazing poetry.

This is very powerful! What you say is of pure sex. Love is an afterthought.. Making love is the catalyst that provides the exquisite pleasure.
This is very nicely done.

Take care - Dave
