Pleasure…in Love Songs

The directions said, “From the tantalizing to the satisfyingly sober, have your poem convey a sense of pleasure today. Imbue it with joy, glee, and profound contentment — or, if you wish to keep it dark, write about the lack of or longing for pleasure in your life.”

Also, “Add some structure to your poem today by making use of anaphora — a poetic device that relies on the repetition of the same word or phrase at the beginning of each verse.”

Ooh! I have the perfect piece!

When you kiss me…
And I kiss you back

It’s like a
Perfectly, put-together Playlist of my
Favorite love songs
That do that Maxwell’s
“Sumthin…sumthin”
To me
I just can’t explain

But, I’ll try…..

When you kiss me…
And I kiss you back

It’s like Wiz Khalifa’s “Something New”
It tastes new
It feels new
It makes me
NEW

When you kiss me…
And I kiss you back

In one breath
I hear dvsn’s “Miss Me”
Cause I do

In another Maroon 5
“Beautiful Mistake”
Cause it might be

When you kiss me…
And I kiss you back

It’s more than
You pressing
Your lips on
My lips

It’s you making
Time for me
To focus for that moment
Only on me
Giving that india.arie kinda
“Therapy”

I get lost
In time…all the time
Floating somewhere
Between a dream and the reality
That I really could
Be in this moment with you
Like Drake’s
Forever

When you kiss me…
And I kiss you back

It’s like
Everything that is wrong
Has somehow been
Made right
I can hear
Common in my ear
With my questions of
“The Questions”
Like…
Did I
Really just feel
What I thought
I felt?
Is this dude
Trying to
Make me melt?
Can this
Kiss
Be that heartfelt?
And Lord
What
Have I
Just been dealt?

When you kiss me…
And I kiss you back

It’s never
Quick, short, or hurried
But done
Slowly, deeply, and passionately
Like a REAL kiss Should be

I can hear
A melody of “yous”
In my ear
Like
Marvin Gaye‘s
“I Want You”
Kindred the Family Soul‘s
“Where Would I Be If I Didn’t Know You”
Avant‘s “Y. O. U.”
Even Beyoncé’s
“I Miss You”

When you kiss me…
And I kiss you back

It’s like H. E. R. ‘s
Every time I try to leave
“Something Keeps Pulling Me Back”
It’s like
All my favorite love songs
All rolled up
Into that one moment
With you

So, see
When you kiss me…
And I kiss you back

You do that Love Jones kinda
Maxwell “Mellosmoothe”
“Sumthin…sumthin”
To me
I just can’t explain

But I tried…
