Shades of Red

Shades of Red

A Poem by Emily Lynn

The colour of lust bold and hot

Radiating sultry lips of crimson

Which pucker to temptations call

Beckoning with covetous hunger

To devour desire with sweet red tongue

Which moistens full luscious lips

Parting for whispers of deep seeded longing.


Shades of heat rising through warming blood

Pumping hard through veins of arousal

Circulating cherry tones of grinning seduction

And raising goosebumps along peek-a-boo flesh

To awaken senses of magnetic provocation


Skin glistens like dew covered grass

With beads of sweat rolling down like pebbles

Over tantalizing curves swelling with unbearable need

To a bed below so soft with moss, cooling steamy flesh

Of desire so ripe, rippling out in a wave of pleasure

To caress the universal hunger with blazing tongues of fire

And evoke that animalistic craving of satisfaction


With lips of scarlet plump with lust

And the cool motion of a slender finger

She beckons all to taste her sweet flesh

Planting kisses of blossoming roses

Along the soft pale skin of a goddess

As fine silks fall away like feathers

Like the feathers from the stroking wings

Of the seducing angle, the smirking temptress.

Very well written and visual! Your words carried me along with anticipation for the complete revealing of your story. Extremely sensual as it leads one down the path but not vulgar more like a tease leaving one wanting satisfaction and more I like it, hope you win.

I loved it.! I could only hope to write as amazing as you do one day. I mean that is a lot of writing for only describing the color of red. Your writings are just as beautiful as you. Please go review some of my writings, and help me get better. -courtland.
