Erotic writing...in my opinion


Most erotic writing is so trite that the artistry becomes an exercise in rearranging cliches rather than writing anything remotely creative or original. Many authors, trying to be creative or original, resort to shock value and try to push the envelope by being more vivid and graphic. I'm not saying there is no value in those pursuits entirely. I have even read a handful (pun intended) of Penthouse Letters in the past. Erotic poetry is even worse, usually. It is generally either so pathetically bad one can't stand to read the whole thing, or the author goes the other direction and it becomes so flowery and/or obtuse that it ceases to stir the mind of the reader toward sensuality. How many times do we have to read some version of, "Your lips are like red wine, so sweet and intoxicating," before we say, ENOUGH? Good metaphor but simplistic and over-done. As an ameteur poet (I heard the groans!) I rarely set out to write erotic, or even romantic, poems. Sometimes, however, I follow the muse into even that most treacherous territory. When I do, I try to take the subject on from a slightly different angle or at the very least, handle it with creative language to make it a little less painful to read. It doesn't always work, but I keep trying. I've been watching my stats; since I have very few readers to disappoint, I will post a poem now and then. I'd be interested to hear how they are received by others. For those of you who do not like poetry of any sort (I can't imagine such a person, lol) I will designate the post as a poem in the title.

Sign
i once found words that
touched me.

and i
had to capture them

so i wrote a poem
like a cage
to hold them

Don’t Feed The Words
said the sign

and so no one came
to read my words
and they touched
no one

That, I like. I'm starting to feel a little less talented than I thought I was, but that is good. Thanks for sharing.

thought you may like this one....
not your normal erotic poetry...

cruising the rooms in search
of a program with textual flash
to make the virtual real

some screen savers never change

nodding dropping a towel sucking
to dance music ideals are models forms
to be mimicked no single portable data file
can contain the googled image

deleting an error will not change the code

through the shower into the steam back
to a common area scan and be seen preen
dream of a transfer that will instantly defrag
the system

all change is subject to auto-disconnect

click yes if its safe lick to lubricate insert ram
backslash pause F1 question page up print
colon tab spacebar end F2
4 6 8 who do we

keyboard locked.

thanks mark

That one is fun! I love it. Can I share it with a friend? I promise not to take credit for it.
