The Lust Storm

Love the storm.
I am all lust without you.

I am the love storm, all lust
without you.

Love, am I all lust
without you—the storm?

Am I all storm without
the lust you love?

Without you, I am the lust storm
all love.

  7. I'd say you've done this challenge to a "T". I like the play of lust/lost.

  8. Strangely 'Lust' is a word that has got a negative publicity. Hopefully with sexy poems like this Magaly, it can recover some merit once again.

    1. Social (and often religious) interpretation of certain words are quite... frustrating, indeed. I join you in hoping things will get better.

    1. When I read Kim's advice, about choosing words we liked and such, love and lust started howling, "Me! Me!" and I couldn't resist. I am so glad you like it, Helen.
