Are you trying to give me a heart attack? That's really good, Elizabeth!

Thanks for your kind words, Nimrod, and no I'm not trying to give you a heart attack...or anyone else either. BTW what did you mean by that?

I said what I said because my cousin's aunt writes romantic novels, and by reading this, it sounds strangely similar. I have no idea why I commented at all, except that you asked what we thought. It is a bit cute.

I think you have wonderful potential for erotic poetry ! Have you written any ? If you have, I'd love to see it! Most of mine is erotic - some people are offended by it, but honestly, it's nothing that we haven't all dabbled in, and it's so fantastic to FEEL where these poems take you!! Keep up the good work!

Thank you poetFemmeFatale! I wrote a poem called "You Belong to Me"-hidden somewhere in this forum, and it's kind of like this one. My poetry isn't quite as erotic as others, but I would like it to be! Thank you again!

I liked your poem. At first I thought it was going to be along the theme of "Third Rate Romance (Low Rent Rendezvous)," and then you turned the corner and made it even better.

As for erotic poems: Since I'm "just a mere man," do you think you could write us a poem about Super Bowl parties or professional wrasslin'????
