They saw as i your quivering breast

They saw as I your quivering breast, and drew
Nearer to the consuming flame that burns
Deep to the marrow of my bone, and turns
My heart to love even as theirs who knew
From head to girdle each sweet curve of you,
Each little way of loving….
~George Sylvester Viereck, "The Haunted House"

To love you like the midnight storm

To love you like the midnight storm!…
To hear the wild beating of your veins; to feel flame shuddering your blood and to agonize you with my ardor.
To crush you as a flower upon my breast,
To bear you away to some secret valley where I would love you into insensibility….
~Blanche Shoemaker Wagstaff

Her lovely yielding form i prest sweet

Her lovely yielding form I prest,
Sweet Maddening Kisses stole;
And soon her swimming Eyes confest,
The wishes of her Soul:
In wild tumultuous Bliss I cry,
O Delia now be kind,
She pressed me close and with a Sigh,
To melting joys resign’d…
~James Oswald, "The Progress of Love," 1700s

Thou art a flower dear heart fragrant

Thou art a flower, dear heart, a fragrant flower
And I, the wandering, hair-clad, amorous bee.
‘Mongst all the regal beauties of the bower,
I seek but thee.
I feel the ivory of thy petals fair
Brush lightly on my belly as I woo
And I would sting thee, if I did but dare,
So sweet you are.
I suck the honey from your dewy bowl
And drunken mad, with wild, delirious bliss,
Within your cup, I yield to you my soul
And drink your kiss….

No other thoughts no cares just the

No other thoughts, no other cares,
Just the quenching of mad desire.
Riding the tide of passion,
Pushing my love into you.
On the waves of your emotion –
In slow motion, so sweet and true.
Pulse pounding in resounding rapture,
Taken to the hilt, then just past….
~Michael Anderson, "More!"

Then in a burst of blinding weather

Then in a burst of blinding weather.
The lightnings flung
Long, passionate arms about the earth that clung
To her wild lover.
Suddenly above her
The whole sky tumbled in a sweeping blaze,
Gathering earth in one tight-locked embrace,
Drenching her in a flood of silver flame.
Hot thunders came;
And still the storm kept plunging, seeking ever
The furthest cranny, till the faraway
Streams felt each penetrating quiver
And the most hidden river
Rose and became released….
~Louis Untermeyer, "Summer Storm"

She exposed her nethermost attire unto the

She exposed her nethermost attire
Unto the embraces of the fire;
So the chaste Phoenix of the East
With fluttering fires her spicy nest….
[F]inding no resistance, higher
As ’tis their nature to aspire,
Approaching near the seat of bliss,
The centre of earthly happiness,
Which vastly more of pleasure yields,
Than all the feigned Elysian fields….
~Thomas Brown, "Melisinda’s Misfortune"

Ye gods the raptures of that night

Ye Gods! the raptures of that night!
What fierce convulsions of delight!
How in each other’s arms involv’d
We lay confounded, and dissolved!
Bodies mingling, sexes blending,
Which should most be lost contending,
Darting fierce and flaming kisses,
Plunging into boundless blisses;
Our bodies, and our souls on fire.
Tost by a tempest of Desire;
Till with utmost fury driven,
Down, at once, we sunk to heaven.
~Author Unknown, "The Enjoyment"
