(PLEASE NOTE: This is a resubmission for the purposes of the in-house poetry competition. If you wish to leave a review it would be appreciated if it could be entered on the original entry as I am uncertain of the future of resubmitted works. Thankyou for your co-operation - and hopefully your review.)
(PS: Please take the time to read my other NEW poem, also just posted called "War of Words")

Will you enter here and spend time with me,
Between the sheets of the written word?
A private place of fresh-laundered poems.
Will you caress the flesh of a soul laid bare?
Feel the downy silk here,
And the scar tissue there?
Drink in the sight of a naked heart,
The rise and fall of its sensual beat.
Syncopate to the pattern of its complicated rhythms,
Shy not from an intimacy both rare and deep.
Let the sweet resonance join us a while,
Let's forget about form,
Let's forget about style.
For I seek not seduction with my intimate words,
But the pure warm joy of a sensual meeting
Of like hearts far apart
Briefly as one beating.

Hello DJ

Oh yes! Soooo true and so perfectly expressed! After reading this, I am embarrased to have been embarrassed when just yesterday, I posted one of my 'scars' - the first one really - because I am happy to 'post my downy silk'(!), but after half a day I deleted it because as gracious and empathetic as my sweet reviewers were, I was too tentative about the 'scar tissue'....

A fabulous and provocative write - well done!

I love this, and yes it is indeed an intimate experience!
Reviewed by D.J. Ludlow
Sensual most definitely Julie but not seductive, rather the ultimate intimacy that is true poetry - a sharing and bonding of the soul. Intimacy is the essence of poetry. The willingness of a poet to lay bare their very soul, and that wonderfully intimate moment when a reader dares to enter in and caress the bare soul of another.

DJ, you have made poetry-writing sound like a seductive and sensual experience. Lovely!
