Stinging Flesh

The Smell of a flower so fresh and potent
Taste of virgin now become of bloom
Feel alive so tenderly touched upon
Gates of fire cinder my thoughts of temptation
A las heaven strikes my body and soul, I smile
His physique piled of smooth stone as of culture
To the dawn we awake to the sun
Hunting for feelings but my body won’t surrender

    The title sets it and then the verse moves around the thought without having to go into details. This kind of verse sparks the imagination and makes the reader paint their own picture. Love it
