Sweet Ink

By Benjamin Grossman & Bree Leto

There’s no denying the sweetness
When we share the body
Of a poem

Your words make my ink blush
Our fingers stroking the same lines
A teasing exchange of sugared phrases
Awakening our entwined imaginations

Every time we devour
Each other’s souls
Savoring new flavors
Created from our intimate flow

When we write like this
I need more than just letters
There’s something brewing beyond this sweet ink

Let’s put down these pens
Write on our bodies instead

Please, make sure you check out her blog by visiting Secret Thoughts Within. I can’t say enough good things about her as poet and a person. Her writing is intelligent, clever, funny, diverse, thoughtful, and passionate. A mixture of depth and pure beauty. Also, she can read a poem like no other. Truly her talent flies off the page and stays with you!

    That took an unexpected turn at the end! 😀 Lovely collaboration. I love ink blush / intimate flow and the last two lines: Let’s put down these pens / write on our bodies instead ❤

    • Some say there is nothing like a good twist. Thanks a lot for your words. They mean so much to me. It’s always cool to see the lines that readers pick out. Glad to know you thought those parts worked, especially coming from your keen poetic eye. Have a fantastic rest of your weekend! ❤

    Love your poems and the fun and humor on it

  23. Lia says:

    Wow – familiar poetic territory, taken to the next level, in a delectably sweet way. I love the romantic idea of writing on the body. I still think of tattoos periodically… (Always wanted one, really :)) Impressive collaborating skills as always. Two talented poets. Love to both of you!! xoxo

    • I know what you mean. Tattoos have such deep meanings for many. Although I’ve never gotten one myself. I have thought of it before. But somehow I’m probably allergic since … I’m allergic to almost everything. Thanks for your wonderful thoughts. xoxo

      • Lia says:

        Ah. 😅 Well, guess some of the best people are allergic to almost everything then. :)) Thanks for the kind reply! xoxo

  24. Wow, sweetly & intimately erotic! Great job, Benjamin & Bree! 🌞

    Well, shit. You both just created a blushing masterpiece. Absolutely love it!
