I had this penchant for beautiful men. What can I say? So sue me ....

 

You stand framed
In my doorway,
A modern god,
Priapus made mortal,
Pride of Aphrodite.
 
The backlight plays
Shadow games in your hair;
The muscles of your belly
Would drive Michaelangelo
Insane with envy, and
Would make Pygmalion weep.
 
It is not finished;
Opposing wills of flint and steel
Strike sparks into the
Tinder of our beings.
 
 
The fire begins again,
Consuming us both,
Until at last, like the Phonenix,
I rise up singing
From the ashes of your body.

HOT Lava! Who was this one for?? Sounds like a flashback from some long ago midnight ramble. :)

Pat, can any man measure up to these words?

The backlight plays
Shadow games in your hair;
The muscles of your belly
Would drive Michaelangelo
Insane with envy, and
Would make Pygmalion weep.

I mean, they say I've got nice legs but--
