The 10 Best Sexy Sex Poems To Turn You And Your Partner On

1. "To A Dark Moses" by Lucille Clifton

You are the one

I am lit for.

Come with your rod

that twists

and is a serpent.

I am the bush.

I am burning

I am not consumed.

2. "Sea Poppies" by H. D.

Amber husk

fluted with gold,

fruit on the sand

marked with a rich grain,

treasure

spilled near the shrub-pines

to bleach on the boulders:

your stalk has caught root

among wet pebbles

and drift flung by the sea

and grated shells

and split conch-shells.

Beautiful, wide-spread,

fire upon leaf,

what meadow yields

so fragrant a leaf

as your bright leaf?

3. "Arrival" by William Carlos Williams

And yet one arrives somehow,

finds himself loosening the hooks of

her dress

in a strange bedroom—

feels the autumn

dropping its silk and linen leaves

about her ankles.

The tawdry veined body emerges

twisted upon itself

like a winter wind...

4. "Wild Nights" by Emily Dickinson

Wild nights - Wild nights!

Were I with thee

Wild nights should be

Our luxury!

Futile - the winds -

To a Heart in port -

Done with the Compass -

Done with the Chart!

Rowing in Eden -

Ah - the Sea!

Might I but moor - tonight -

In thee!

5. "After Making Love In Winter" by Sharon Olds

At first I cannot even have a sheet on me,


anything at all is painful,

a plate of
iron laid down on my nerves,

I lie there in the
air as if flying rapidly without moving,

and
slowly I cool off—hot,


warm, cool, cold, icy,

till the
skin all over my body is ice


except at those points our bodies touch like


blooms of fire. Around the door


loose in its frame, and around the transom, the


light from the hall burns in straight lines and


casts up narrow beams on the ceiling, a

figure throwing up its arms for joy.


In the mirror, the angles of the room are calm, it is the


hour when you can see that the angle itself is blessed,


and the dark globes of the chandelier,


suspended in the mirror, are motionless—I can


feel my ovaries deep in my body, I


gaze at the silvery bulbs, maybe I am


looking at my ovaries, it is


clear everything I look at is real


and good. We have come to the end of questions,


you run your palm, warm, large,


dry, back along my face over and


over, over and over, like God


putting the finishing touches on, before

sending me down to be born.

6. "XVII" by E. E. Cummings

Lady, I will touch you with my mind.

Touch you and touch and touch

until you give

me suddenly a smile, shyly obscene

7. "Sultry Sunday" by L. M.

Calloused fingertips

trace the silhouettes

of smooth, contrasting thighs.

They navigation rounded hips

with familiar fascination.

Inhalations whisper of longing.

The breaths catch...

while fingers orchestrate

an exhaled symphony of moans.

8. "Inside" by A. A.

I wrote poems inside of her

with my fingers.

Our story began

with her scream.

And ended with her soul

on my lips.

9. "Erotica" by S. T. P.

I made love to her on paper.

and spilled ink like passion across the sheets.

I caressed her curves in every love letter.

I kissed up and down her thighs in short sentences and prose.

I tasted all her innocence, without a spoken word.

I bit her lip and pulled her hair, in between the lines.

I made her arch her back and scream,

it only took a pen.

10. Untitled poem by Sahith Shetty

Graze your fingers

against my skin

like a soldier

crossing a landmine

throw your kisses

like grenades

into the trenches

of my mouth

carve bullet holes

onto my chest

and remind me

of where it hurts

let your moans

sound like gunfire

and your breath

feel like death

i'll come

unarmed

if you promise

to destroy me

make war

not love
