Love or Lust?

Written By: Praveen  |  Category: Love  |  (19) Comments  |  

it was love at first sight,
the moment i met you,
sparks flew and brought us,
closer and together;Romantic Cuddling

barely a minute goes by,
without me thinking,
is this too good,
to be true;

i pinch myself from time to time,
just to make sure i am not dreaming,
and not hallucinating all this,
between you and me;

a touch here, a touch there,
a kiss here, a kiss there,
a gentle caress, a playful nibble,
hands all over everytime we are together;

few seconds of leaving you out of my sight,
a frantic search begins, scanning everything and everywhere,
and it stops only when i find you,
standing, smiling and playing with my heart;

your lips against mine,
as we indulge in our sins,
your body next to mine,
entwined in our flame of ecstasy;

in the moonlight glow,
as we drift into deep peace,
tell me baby,
is it Love or is it Lust?

this can either be taken as a standalone poem or as a continuation of the previous two poems – Love at First Sight and Together.

    Beautifully spoken. As I read this writing, I went back to my 2011 summer lover. Two lustful weekends together, following several months of romantic e-mails and followed up by several more.

    It’s all over now as she could not cope with a long distant relationship where time together was limited to telephone conversations, e-mails, texts and annual visits to be together.

    Though I still cherish her so, remaining in my heart and soul both day and night. I now accept our relationship as a close friendship and pray only that someday it may be more.

    Beautiful poetry!!!! I love this poem too!!! But tell me can it be both love and lust?? Been living with my boyfriend for over a year and I dearly love him!!!

    “Love or Lust” sounds like lust turned into love. Sometimes that’s the way it goes… but friendship, companionship and trust in my opinion is the best way to start a relationship. Edie T.

    Thank you Sandy. It can be both love and lust, buts that only a small percentage, i think.
