Warning

Warning  There’s an explosive in my vagina at the ready to detonate, controlling the words I say, the who’s I manipulate, the culprit of the mistakes I didn’t mean to make.   There’s an explosive in my vagina, implanted and yelling like a second brain, demanding and taunting, ravaging self-restraint until the regrets pile up like beer bottles at a party.

Back in college, in the one and only poetry class I ever took, my teacher looked us all in the eye and said, “If you’ve never written a poem about sex, you should.” I questioned whether or not it was a good idea to post this poem on here, but for the sake of being real, I decided to go for it. I wrote this in the afternoon while having a casual conversation with my roommate about going to the gynecologist.

  1. You were right to post it. It is well done and written in good taste. Sensuality and sexuality is a powerful emotion and poetry is rooted in the human experience in every range of emotion and being. I believe it must be well done to be effective and you achieve that.

  2. great poem, I like it a lot. Sex is a wonderful thing, it is what you make it, just like everything else in life. I am 60 years old and for the first time in my life i have a man I can’t wait to touch and hold and kiss…. it is a wonderful thing!! sex is an inspiring topic, I have written on the subject but don’t dare post here, my kids might read it, way to much information for them! 🙂

  3. So much can come out of writing a poem about sex. In the end, it might not even be a sex poem but the energy from writing it as if turns it into something with sparks!

    1. I actually took this picture the same night that partially influenced this poem. I also just felt like the vibe of it matched with the emotion of the poem. I can’t really explain why I choose most of my backgrounds. I just see whatever seems to fit with how I’m feeling. Thanks!
