Secundum Sublecio

The afterglow of intercourse burns gold,
entangled limbs in tenderness retreat
elation’s warmth cannot be oversold

orgasmic undulations uncontrolled
this room cocooned, all else is obsolete
the afterglow of intercourse burns gold

each cell is spent in effort, now we mould
to one again, in stillness of the beat
elations warmth cannot be oversold

in quiet time emotions here unfold
two bodies pressed in more enticing heat,
the afterglow of intercourse burns gold

for moments, I am beautiful and bold
this body gives up quaking in defeat
elation’s warmth cannot be oversold

no words are needed, stories yet untold
just lay with me upon this crumpled sheet
the afterglow of intercourse burns gold,
elation’s warmth cannot be oversold.

Remember I threatened to write a response to lovely Luke Praters Coitus non Circum? well here it is in it’s original villanelle form. Thanks Luke for being such a good sport through this!

Orgasms are great aren’t they? ;)

  1. The afterglow of intercourse burns gold… molten sexuality expressed in an empowering way. Agree with Sheila. lol …The world blocked out in a liberating cocoon—great imagery. And yes, they are ;)

  2. ah you played well off of lukes…very nice shan…you start strong in that opening image of the afterglow…marvelous imagery through out

  3. My long lost friend, THIS is a brilliant response to Mr. Wordsalad. I have enjoyed both his in form and free verse, and thought this fantastic! You’ve nailed the form perfectly, which alone deserves a standing O (sorry, pun intended, lol) And no worries at about the absence…One would naturally assume you’re living life, soaking up the inspiration, and returning with your awesome writes as a result. :) Thanks for the visit and the write!

  4. Absolutely love this Shân. Wonderful refrain lines, always the backbone of a great villanelle. Bydew ‘n ddigon cariad.

  5. How deft your iambs and sweeping your villanelle, how passionate your words! How far you’ve come in such few short months to become an accomplished poet. If anyone wants to see the results of hard work and a curious mind, I would direct them here. I am so very proud of you! Excellent work, Shan.

  6. Ooohh…lovely! Sooo warm and sensuous… gurgling with tender feelings… FELT this one, Shan… really lovely!
    “this room cocooned, all else is obsolete” — now that is THE perfect way to put it… (sigh…) ;)
