Funny, fuzzy, feelings still niggle inside, 
Of  stolen moments of passion that we have to hide! 
Crumpled, damp, sheets,  
Share  the secrets of our illicit meet 
Our animal attraction and hungry, consuming lust! 
Merely a thirst needing quenching, 
Sated by every touch and passionate thrust, 
Just a physical desire, 
To dampen the fires 
That raged uncontrollable within 
Crumpled sheets the only witness 
To this,
Sin ! 

Submitted for Magpie Tales  who supplied the inspiration 


  1. lust most certainly takes us back to animalistic tendencies...consumed we make decisions we never thought we might...

  2. I could go for a bit of animalistic passion right now, though in the long run, it takes much more than that to keep me happy. :)

  3. This was a great poem to the prompt
    those crumpled sheets just gave them away
    Have a great week

  4. I think the crumpled sheet betokens a water-bed.
    More hugs.

  5. Whoa, I feel like a cigarette (and I don't smoke!). Raw and wonderful read.

  6. A thought provoking piece....great writing!

  7. crumpled sheets the only witness...the only close up witness...there's the walls, and the floor ;)
