Never Enough


Your words transport me

New worlds open and I step out

Reaching for you to lead me

I am afraid even as you pull me in

Insatiable for new experience

Willingly I strip my defenses

Standing before you naked

Your words wash over me like silk

Catching on my rough edges

Ravenous for your touch

Gently your fingers trace my shape

Following curves I had forgotten

Raising hope I am enough

Soothing fears as light explodes

Β Voracious in my demands

Catch me as I fall

Knees weak and heart faltering

Your smile is predatory

You lift me up with words

Insatiable for more

Never enough

Valentine, 30-July-2014


  1. Another brilliantly and clever use of words in your tantalising teasing pose.. πŸ™‚ Great Val..

    • I am getting there with remembering how to play with words in poetry. It is a long forgotten joy to write, I am taking great pleasure in these. Thank you for reading and enjoying them.

    Well this piece of poetry and your
    photograph are definitely that
    and so much more πŸ™‚ Lovely…

    Andro xxxx

    • thank you so much my friend. There is a story behind the picture, someday I might tell it.

      • Gray Dawster says:

        When that time comes I will be happy to read it, you are a lovely woman Val, and exquisitely beautiful in every way. Have a very nice Sunday my dear friend πŸ™‚

        Andro xxxx

  3. Such passion in you words, Val.

  4. Very nice imagery…especially the forgotten curves. I second the commenter who mentioned needing a cold shower!

  5. Raw passion comes through in these verses.

  6. ***Raising hope I am enough***

    Yes. You. Are.

    LOVE love love that photo of you, Val!!!! xxxxxxxx

  7. Of course you are enough!! I also concur with the ‘Never enough’ at the end πŸ™‚ A beautiful composition Valentine.

  8. “…Following curves I had forgotten…”
    Forgetting one’s femaleness is heartbreaking.
    This is truly moving, Val.

  9. This one really speaks to the risks of love and the fears we have about it. Bravo!

    Finally….. πŸ˜‰ Very good. Very emotional in a good way. Finally.

    • Yes, I know. I am slow and deliberate. There is still one more on paper and still a story percolating. All in good time My, all in good time.
