Written more as a song than a poem, about the deepest shadows of desire and longing for a former love. Let me state right off that I do not advocate domestic violence. This is not about that kind of cruelty. It is about a longing so strong that even a fist in brutality would be his flesh touching mine.

 
 
I want to feel him inside me again,
I want his stench to surround me
So desperate for his touch
I want him to hurt me

I want him to consume my soul again,
I want his arms around me
So desperate for his touch
I want him to hurt me

I want him to bite my lip again,
I want his breathe to warm me
So desperate for his touch
I want him to hurt me

I want to feel my hair knotted in his fist again,
I want to feel his body next to me
So desperate for his touch
I want him to hurt me

I want to have my life back again,
I want to finally stand up for me
But I'm so desperate for his touch
I WANT him to hurt me

Saturday Night

Very moving poem. Like the comparison of pleasure and pain. Enjoyed it.

I swore to myself that this would be the only sappy, depressing, whiney love poem I would ever publish here. But it's been on my mind constantly and I just had to get that "token" one out. Let's all hope I can keep my promise! Errr, oh ya, and thank you.......

I don't think it's whiney at all..but I'm with SN, it's moving and you can feel the struggle there. Great job again!5!

Thank you. It's good to know others don't hear it as whining, but can see the glimpse of struggle that I go thru everyday as I wake and that poem automatically recites in my head.
