Make Up Sex (An Ode)

I've mentioned before that I'm a fan of Ashley Lister's Writing Exercise over at the The Erotica Readers and Writers Association Blog. This month's exercise is about Odes, so I thought I'd have a go:

Make Up Sex

Despite our love which we declare,
There comes a time when we still fight,
Each other’s wrongs are all laid bare,
And old resentments brought to light.

Though angry words in haste are said,
We can not let them last the night,
But in the safety of our bed,
Let quarrels die and flesh unite.

The Kiss (Video)

I was messing around with YouTube's Video Editing software and I created this video using clips that are free to use under the creative commons licence The music is Journeying by Simon Lambros. I thought this was also made available by YouTube under the creative commons licence as well, although that's not the case.

The Kiss is actually the first stanza of a poem I wrote called Lovemaking.

Than-Bauk - A Burmese poetic form

I was posting on the forums over at Lushstories and someone mentioned that the Haiku was the smallest poetic form that they were aware of. However, there is a Burmese form called the Than-Bauk which is shorter.

The Than-Bauk is usually a witty saying or epigram. Like the Haiku it has three line, however, each line has four syllables. Also, unlike a Haiku, the Than-Bauk has a climbing rhyme: the rhyme is on the fourth syllable of the first line, the third syllable of the second line, and the second syllable of the third line. They are therefore a lot more structured than a Haiku.

Here's a couple of examples I wrote:

Start by flirting,
Then touching lips,
Ending in bed.

Kiss me, lover,
All over, please,
Covering me.

I must admit that I don't find them as satisfying to write as a Haiku, although I don't know why. Nevertheless, they are an interesting challenge.

A Load Of Limericks

I often read Ashley Lister's Writing Exercise over at the The Erotica Readers and Writers Association Blog and this month it has been about Limericks. I've written a few before for my own amusement and occasionally posted them on sites I visit. So, I thought I'd collect them here for the reader's delectation and delight.

There was a young man, name of Rob,
Whose girlfriend gave him a blowjob,
Went down on her knees,
But started to sneeze,
And nearly bit off his knob.

 The Marquis De Sade did complain,
I get so much pleasure from pain,
That I liked to beat,
The girls from the street,
And so they declared me insane.

A pregnant young woman in pain,
Was bitterly heard to complain,
“Once I’ve given birth,”
She said without mirth,
“No man’s gonna touch me again!”

There once was a blushing young bride,
A virgin, completely untried,
So she got a shock,
The first time a cock,
Into her vagina did slide.

There was a young hubby called Fred,
Whose wife went and shot him cold dead,
When asked by the judge,
If she had a grudge,
Said, “Yes, he kept farting in bed.”

Two Short Cheeky Poems

My Insatiable Lover

My girlfriend took me on the floor,
And then upon the bed,
By now my cock was feeling sore;
My bell end gone quite red.
So when she still cried out for more,
Politely, I showed her the door.

Feeling Deflated

'Twas in the midst of passion,
My girlfriend gave a sigh,
And rapidly deflated,
I thought that I would cry,
I didn’t stay downhearted,
I knew just what to do,
Got my puncture repair kit,
Now she’s as good as new.

Author's Note 
Another couple of poems I wrote for Lush's short snappy cheeky poems thread. Again I have tried to write them in the style of Harry Graham's Ruthless Rhymes. I've edited the first one so it is slightly different from that which appeared on Lush and I'm still not sure which is better.
