The strength of writing sonnets is that they are, by definition, short. You only get 14 lines to say whatever it is you want to say, each line can only have ten syllables in it (iambic pentameter) and there’s a rhyme scheme you have to follow (this one goes: ABAB CDCD EFEF GG). Because I’m more or less tone deaf I spend a lot of time counting out the syllables on my finger tips and trying to figure out how to make a sentence work that has whatever rhyming word in it the poem requires. Of course, sometimes you rework a line or sentence so much that while it might succeed as a correct line in poetry, when you reread it you think “damn, is that what I really think?” So, for the record, I’ll just say that love is more than the ability to cum or have an orgasm. There’s more to life than erections. It’s not that I advocate necrophilia, but rather, it’s hard to talk about a ghost lover without at least hinting at it. Oh yes, and I really like the word “luscious,” people should use it more in conversations. Cheers!

I love your lips, cracked; your eyes, all bloodshot.
Our lust is what gives luscious fear its life.
All night in my bed, we turned cold death hot.
Who loves you? Would just any man or wife
lick the grave dirt from between your cunt lips?
Cum for me. You came back for me. I came
inside you. The proof of our love now drips
inside you. When it’s love there is no shame.
Embrace the wicked light of a June moon.
Sing to me what the Dead know of the night.
And, my dark one, I want you to cum soon.
Cum like roman candles, burn like sunlight.
It was the way you slipped back into bed,
hungry, aroused, as if luscious fear led.
