Making Love
by The Poetess (SRP)

Sex is nothing

But a performance

Born of learned technique.

But LOVE. . . .

Making Love

Is the uniting

Of bodies. . . .


In an exploration

Of the SOUL. . . .

With feeling

That extends

Beyond ETERNITY. . . .

We need poetic expressions such as "Making Love" to remind us all of the importance and primacy of soulful contacts.

Well spoken!

You have captured this definition in its entirety with passion and warmth.

and passion fuels them both
sometimes lust disguises itself as love
but love always reveals
each with erotic & sensual intimacies
combined together as one beautiful experience
Love's Bounty
Reviewed by John Flanagan 1/12/2011
The distinction is always worth making for the aspiration to love and be loved is among the highest we can know.

"Extends beyond eternity" is so true when the love is real, beautiful writing...

Be always safe,

How sad and strange it is in these fast modern days to think that bodies often heat together while spirits remain imprisoned, apart. Your poem goes a long way to reminding us that we ought to settle for nothing less than the ideal of spiritual and physical union... 'tis a consummation devoutly to be wished. Good write, Poetess.

Richard, I promise that this didn't come from your poem. I wrote it in the spring of 2004. It was originally entitled, "Sex" and has already been in a few of my publications. But I'd love to read yours. It will be interesting to see if they are coincidentally similar.
Reviewed by Richard King 1/11/2011
Poetess, Like this a lot. I can't find it right now, but this one reminds me of one of my old poems in which I said something comparing "making love, or just having sex.... to a live concert, or Memorex." This will prompt me to take the time to look it up.

Thanks Dick
