The Making Of Perfect Love

     The Making Of Perfect Love

The sex is simple.

Though there’s pattern, never boring.

Feeling new, e’en better every time.

How can that be?

The years have passed the ‘sell by’ date,

And one knows couples who

Are either bored to death or hate

The touch, approach,

Who douche

Just to escape the loathing

(even some who wear their clothing

into bed).


But with us, we focus.

Simple, the affection real,

Start so gradual

It’s hardly recognizable as such.

As for the finish,

Since there never was a start,

It sometimes has no end,

Just petering from aged tiredness

With never a dissatisfaction,

Life and day continuing

In the most natural of ways.

Pleasures Of A Low Sex Drive

Low sex drive,

No sex drive,

Enjoying it,

The yearning, pining, longing gone,

Not missing it a bit.

Distracting thoughts,

One-sided thoughts,

Dissipated into thin, thin air,

Scattered and dispelled God-knows-where.

Who in heaven or hell cares?

Like losing fetters

That bound up mind, heart

(and other parts) for years.

What a delight

To have hormonal chains


All by themselves, fording

Oceans, seas and rivers

Of their own accord

To come to rest

Inside a calm and loving breast

That doesn’t give a hoot


A screw.

One’s had friends in bed and foes in bed.

How do you tell the difference?

A friend can wait, showing no heat,

No urgency.

The friend acts with simplicity,

Intuitively taking in each movement:

Packing it away as knowledge.


Enemies may never learn.

Don’t know the game.

Full of sexuality,

But kinky if encouraged.

Something’s missing in this bedfellow,

This fellow is a foe.

Soft, rough,

His bit of fluff will never feel enough.

In some way he’s the enemy.


The friend will stop when he intuits.

Never grouchy, even-tempered, ever civil,

Showing love in darling ways, –

Almost asking for permission,

Sex not the priority –

Except when it is, really.

It is sweet and turns one on.


Friends in bed, and foes in bed –

The difference subtle.

Friends produce a long-term trust,

Long-term acceptance;

Enmity defined by just

Its opposite:

Relation that starts out with love

And loses it.

Lazy Love

They wake –well, ‘wake’ is not the word.

Lids refusing opening, muscles slack,

Wakefulness alone marking awareness.

Arm reaching left, remote device bedside,

Sliding, a mere automaton

Reaching near, she presses On;

Lo, light, sound and the television.

Still, the eyes are shut,

Yet something’s wakened.

Lying still, an arm embraces;

Bodies in slow motion snake-en.

Unidentifiable, un-nameable, encased

In one another’s arms, things happen –

Young, fresh, hippy Happening

Straight from the ‘Swinging Sixties’.

Here’s a pair way past their 60’s

Rising high above the years,

Skies above their years

Entranced, in love, enlivened,

Eyes blinked open where

The mini-moans of pleasure bear

Some mini-tears of joy.

Whole-Body Sex


Where least important is the penis and its mate,

Where body-whole squirms,

Both affirming and confirming love,

The stem of love,

The germ of love in every cell,

The spring from which an all-love flows

Feels very, very well



Not form-physique,

Not parts –

(They’re only parts)

But soul/mind/hearts

Defining something deeper,

Terminating in, perhaps

Men Who Need Lots Of Women

One of my more outlandish reflections which will go into my collection called Circling Round Eros II (I’ve already published #I).  Also Love Relationships II. (I’ve already published #1)

Written during a sleepless night the other night (when the mind is unbridled,  and worked on all the next two days.  I hope I’ve got it right – as a poem, that is.

    Men Who Need Lots Of Women

        (analysis and summary)


A hole is a hole,

A tit a tit,

A tongue a tongue,

A come a come,

Orgasm which, like qualities in life

Has ups and downs. 

Grownups must expect, accept them.

Why, the greed, speed, need and lust?

Time wasted in the hunt,

Exhausting in the chase,

The chase a case of fleeting fun,

Seen in mind’s eye only, and

The running ‘round a chaos.

 “You must remember this,

A kiss is still a kiss…”

It is simplicity and peace,

With simplicity in love.

 Analysis and summary

Designed to break illusions

Of the men who need a lot of women.

Listen Husbands Out There

Listen Husbands Out There

Listen husbands out there,

Who ignore, disdain

Vagina’s brain,

Emotion’s need,

Emotion’s brain,

Vagina’s need;

Romance without the penis,

Lovely garden, a lovely house;

Ignored, the little mouse down where

It counts.

I’ve heard about you husbands

From my lonely friends,

So hear my warning:

One grey morning

After nights of stone

She’ll up and leave that all-prosaic penis,

Yup, alone.
