National Poetry Day

Today is National Poetry Day so I thought I’d share a couple of my favourite erotic poems with you. Would love to know what some of yours are. Why not have a go at writing some erotic poetry and then come share them on our forum?



I like my body

i like my body when it is with your

body. It is so quite a new thing.

Muscles better and nerves more.

i like your body. i like what it does,

i like its hows. i like to feel the spine

of your body and its bones, and the trembling

-firm-smooth ness and which I will

again and again and again

kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,

i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz

of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes

over parting flesh…And eyes big love-crumbs,

and possibly i like the thrill

of under me you quite so new

e.e. cummings (early 20th century American poet)



Because of Our Wisdom

In many parts of the world water is

Scarce and precious.

People sometimes have to walk

A great distance

Then carry heavy jugs upon their


Because of our wisdom, we will travel

Far for love.

All movement is a sign of


Most speaking really says,

“I am hungry to know you.”

Every desire of your body is holy;

Every desire of your body is Holy

Dear one,

Why wait until you are dying

To discover that divine


Hafiz (13th century Sufi mystic)
