The Female Version

Moist sensual lips
Open to receive kisses
Undying love projected 
Tongue to find the unexpected
Home to many phases of love

The Mouth

The Male Version

Moist sensual desires
Opening the lips, moaning pleasures
Undying probes as your lips devour me
Tongue quivers inside joyous pleasures
Home to the warmth of loves flow

The Mouth

Ancient Version

Moments of prayer bring us to silence
Opening, lips ready to kiss the heavens
Underneath passionate tongues seek out pure bliss 
Touching the will of god, to be happy
Humbled as my lips touch the Serenity of love

Penned by Seren Roberts and Arthur Vaso 2013

Notes:  The first verse is actually a poem penned by Seren Roberts here on soup. I thought it was very well done, and saw similarities to a very ancient poem below. Her poem also made me smile, and thus came the next 2 verses. This is less a collaboration and more of a hijacking with duct tape! :) At the same time as reading her poem, I was also researching woman poets who wrote love and sensual poems from the 7th to 12th centuries basically the Golden Age of Islam, in what is now called the Middle East.

If I keep you in my eyes until the world blows up I’d still want you more . . .
I know too well those marvelous lips.
By Allah, I’m not lying if I say I love sipping their finerthanwine
delicious dew . . .
When you break at noon you’ll need a drink and you’ll find my mouth
a bubbling spring and my hair a refugeshade.

Hafsa bint al-Hajj Arrakuniyya (twelfth century)
