“Love Bites”

It’s January, the month of “new beginnings,” and I learned something new from a wonderful poet—the word “scansion,” which refers to the rhythm of a line of verse.  He also taught me 4-3-4-3 ballad style poetry, so I’ve composed something here in that style. Hope you like it.


“Love Bites”

I’ve typed so much my fingers hurt
Nerve endings start to sting
An odd yet pleasing discomfort
Reminds me of a fling

The only way to stop the pain
Is bite down on each one
Suck the tips ’til feeling’s regained
Then kiss them when he’s done

He scrapes my skin with his sharp teeth
Licks a trail with his tongue
Leaves me burning from deep beneath
A place where it once stung

Connected and so intricate
Is pleasure with my pain
Small bites that inflame and then sate
Resistance is in vain

His oral skills make me shiver
Unleash a lover’s cry
All too soon I feel a quiver
Exhale a drawn-out sigh

    Please take this as a compliment.

    I usually don’t care for erotica. Yet, the way you use tense and atmosphere and the right adjectives makes me enjoy this style – your style- every time.

    good writing is good writing, you know, dude?


  4. A low rumbling growl would fit with those bites and you would feel a tingle you never had before. And fingertips forgotten.

    I loved your poem. Poets can do things mere mortals only dream.


  5. aaaahhhhhhh, yes, please.

    Quite the poem to read on a Sunday afternoon. Enjoy your style.


  14. Eden, it’s not easy to make rhyme and meter so sexy. But the scrape of teeth, the seesaw of pleasure and pain…


  15. Is it just me, or is that poem extra steamy?
