Morning Dances

Warning – Erotica Adult over 18 Only



Your skin reminds me of cinnamon and ginger, that tang of spices fresh and burning on the tongue

Early in the morning I want to inhale you, you sleep cold

You say I am a furnace keeping you warm as you wrap yourself around me

You say I am your anchor; we fall asleep tangled together at night

Every morning you are wrapped around me sharing my heat

My breasts settled heavily in your hand and you nestled between my legs

The sheets are damp, from your sleep and our lovemaking of the night before

Your skin is covered in a sheen of sweat and your spice scent

I sleep too hot in your arms yet am reluctant to leave for cooler climes

Moving will wake you; the scent of your skin sends small shivers down my spine

I push back at you, your arm tightens around me instinctively capturing and slowing movement

You tighten yourself against my back pulling me closer, making us one

Your breath lifts my hair as you nestle closer still, holding tightly

Your breath settles back to the rhythm of slumber even while your body wakes

Slowly we begin to move together with recognized rhythms of morning

We barely move yet the universe spins us outward stars brighten then explode

The flavor of your spice heightened by our morning dance on sunbeams is on my tongue

As our rhythm moves from Tango to Salsa, your hands glide from breast downward

The sun warms you, as I have through the night your slumber undisturbed even as I say good morning

Each of us smile as we settle into our day anchored by the other, your spice fills the room

You have rolled over to the spot I have left and grabbed my pillow, do I leave a scent too

  1. Wow. Intimate and poignant, and also evocatively descriptive. Nice work, Val!

  2. This is beautiful. Not only what it depicts but the way it is written. Well done my friend.

  3. Love, love, love it! Mornings like that are my favorite. Beautiful piece, Val! ♥

  4. This is a part of your writing I didn’t know but am enjoying. Well done again, Val dear 🙂

    • Thank you Eric, it is a part I did not think I would ever share, that I would always keep private. I am gratified by the acceptance I am receiving.

  5. Val.. . Its beautiful and beyond sensual..Love the way your words dance and move including all the senses in a way I wasn’t reading it but seeing it.. And mornings..I miss mornings like it leaves me feeling wistful too. Love it ♥

  6. That is a beautiful rendition of the way things ought to be in a love relationship. Thanks for sharing your talents with each post.

  7. Mmmmmm, thank you for the delicious read!

  8. Beautiful. And I like that I’m not the only person who thinks like this. I mostly only show mine to my muse, though.

  9. Excellent erotic poetry, Val! But, I wish you’d remove the 18+ disclaimer. No one here should get offended, and no one under 18 should be reading your blog anyway.

    • Thank you Alejandro, I do appreciate the nice feedback. I so enjoy moving this side of me from journals and writing new things.

      I have been dinged a couple of times so for now it stays.

  10. Wow! Just…wow! This is excellent.

    What I love about these poems, Val, is that the descriptions are sensual and tantalizing, but the words still leave enough to the imagination. Wonderful! XOXO-Kasey

  12. The scents, the touches… very well done, Val. I am enjoying your release into poetry.

  13. I’m stuck for word, Valentine. This is beyond sensual. ❤
