#MDRomance Week Two: Was off to a hot and delicious piece by the talented Poetess Paris and Mark’s interpretation to the photo & title was very well done as well, thoroughly enjoyed! ~ Debs xox

Mark Davis Author / Poet

By Paris

I sit awaiting his pleasure, eyes blinded to sight
My tongue runs along the inside of my abused bottom lip
Raw from where I had bitten it last night
Pulling my lip between my teeth, I worry it again
Anticipating when my beautiful pleasure will begin

We’ve been here before, but each time feels like the first
He keeps me guessing, keeps me on edge
Has me begging…loves building my thirst
Never knowing where he’ll be
Breath hitching, body quivering, longing for him to touch me

Warm breath caresses my neck…I tilt my head…I silently beg
Wanting the hot, wet press of his mouth…on my flushed, wet skin
Like a jungle cat he moves, stalking his prey, his path a silent segue
For I am poised naked and vulnerable…his captive kitten…claws sheathed
Craving the moment I shall be stroked and teased

His unique essence fills my senses to…

#MDRomance Week: A sensual and exquisite piece by the talented Higherhawk, well done Sir, lovely! ~ Debs xox

Mark Davis Author / Poet

By HigherHawk

I remember the moment that night began
From the second my lips touched your hand
You took that first step I pulled you in tight
Your hand is not the only place my lips kiss tonight
Our bodies find a rhythm in these beating hearts
Stepping faster and faster as our passion starts
You pull your body out, then quickly come back in
We circle, sway, swiftly turn and spin
Your warm breath touches mine as lips do collide
Arms are encircled, our flesh continues to glide
Laying you back in my arms, arching at your peak
For one brief moment my lips find your rosy cheek
Yes I do remember the moment this dance began
With one gentle kiss of your soft hand

#MDRomance Week: First up from the Gentleman Poets is the talent A.M. Harding, his beautiful piece makes you swoon! Well done Mr Harding, love it, well done! ~ Debs xox

Mark Davis Author / Poet

It’s been too long

Alone and weary
I watch and wait
Patient to the end
for you to return
and light to fill the room

A door opens, you’re finally here
Heart racing
Cheeks flushing
Happiness fills me as I race to your side
I hug and kiss you

If I could
I’d give you the moon
I’ll give you my hand
my heart
my soul

#MDRomance Week: An elegant and touching weave of words between these two talented Poets Megan Kay & Mark Davis! ~ Debs xox

Mark Davis Author / Poet


Her fingers spilled
letters of romance
for hearts adrift
to lift in hope

Spelling out swells
of lustful tales
he wrote of passions
in crashing throes

She collected words
in scents of roses
He delivered verses
of submissive poses

She scripted lives
derived from fairytale dreams
He penned of the highs
of writhing elated screams

‘Romance is dead’
he chides her lightly
‘So is passion it seems’
she retorts so effortlessly

As she rests astride
his already awaiting knees
yet another Sunday fades
between their bound bodies

Romance and Lust
Write there

Poetic interprets of title and picture by Mark Davis

Is love shared
Feelings cared
Romance and lust
Deflated by trust

Is the future bright
Are we doing it right?
Blissfully unaware
Their partner is there

A trip to the hills
No internet ills
Phone service away

#MDRomance Week: Two touching pieces by these talented Authors Zoey Hart & Mark Davis! ~ Debs xox

Mark Davis Author / Poet


By Zoey Hart

Her heart pounded
As his hands
Cupped her face
The soft look
In his eyes
Shadowed her own
Her body trembled
As the butterflies
Took flight
The fullness of
His lips
Gently brushing hers
Her eyes rolled
Back as they
Slowly drifted shut
The first kiss
Tender and sweet
Yet full of passion
As he pulled
Away from her
She longed for more
As her eyes
Began to open
He was no longer there
Tucked tight away
In her bed
Silent and alone
The sweetest dream
Of him
Forever in her mind

Poetic Interpretation Of Picture and Title
By Mark Davis 


What had she started?
Would she end up broken-hearted
The first kiss
The bliss
With him and more
Evident by the clothes on the floor

You and I by Rumi


 YOU & I

A moment of happiness,
you and I sitting on the verandah,
apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.
We feel the flowing water of life here,
you and I, with the garden’s beauty
and the birds singing.
The stars will be watching us,
and we will show them
what it is to be a thin crescent moon.
You and I unselfed, will be together,
indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.
The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar
as we laugh together, you and I.
In one form upon this earth,
and in another form in a timeless sweet land.

By Rumi

Words by Rumi

(Sourced via Tumblr.)

I am a sculptor, a molder of form.
In every moment I shape an idol.
But then, in front of you, I melt them down
I can rouse a hundred forms
and fill them with spirit,
but when I look into your face,
I want to throw them in the fire.
My souls spills into yours and is blended.
Because my soul has absorbed your fragrance,
I cherish it.
Every drop of blood I spill
informs the earth,
I merge with my Beloved
when I participate in love.
In this house of mud and water,
my heart has fallen to ruins.
Enter this house, my Love, or let me leave….


By Rumi

(13th Century Persian Poet)

A Romantic Tale ~ #MDRomance Challenge


[ Audio Boo reading – http://t.co/iznxogHCWa ]

Across the bar I observe you
My eyes become aroused by the sight
I flush when you turn
And see me
Wondering now…
How to keep things simple and light?

Then I feel your touch upon my delicate skin
As you’ve found your way over to greet me
The warmth you radiate
Is intoxicating
It saturates deep
Beneath my surface within…

Leaning in so your breath is upon me
Your voice has my heartbeat amiss
I close my eyes
Digesting the moment
Breathing in
Your beguiling scented mist…

We spend an eternity talking
Till you offer to walk me on home
Lacing the strength
Of your fingers within mine
Then head out
Into a new fall of snow…

As we walk, talk and rekindle
Under the canopy
Of a beautiful night
My senses
Are savouring every morsel
Of your masculine bodily delights…

Before we know it
We’ve reach our destination
Where we reluctantly
Turn to say our goodbyes
The demanding kiss that you give me
Has me submitting, with a long and continuous sigh…

Then you whisper your desirable need
To see me again
And quite soon
Leaves me swooning
In a cloud of anticipation…
Of what’s to become, under a the next decadent full moon?
