Dinner Invite

Just a brush of your hand
sends my pulse racing
a blush on my cheek
imagining where it could be tracing

Torture being so close
and not being able to kiss you
feelings of remorse
inviting a visitor or two

Wanting you so much
unable to hold you in my arms
avoiding the slightest touch
because I can't resist your charms

Bound to you, body, heart and soul
never knew such passion
my desire I'm trying to control
as the potatoes I'm mashing

Dinner is finally served
I'm going to be dessert
acting all shy and reserved
hard, when you want to flirt

I'll make a suggestion that you can take or leave knowing that a lot of the poets here disagree with me, but you might want to consider using punctuation. I think it aids in leading the reader.
Good rhyme scheme.

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley

I really liked the concept of the poem and I especially enjoyed the line: "Torture being so close/ and not being able to kiss you..." It's a very relate-able thought.

Hi again you are kind I love that line 2 so thanks for picking it out cheers x

just wondering why the person couldn't respond to the temptation of the other? Was it just because there were guests? Nice work, I like the concept, just wasn't sure about the why of it. ~ Geezer

This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place

Hi Geezer yep its because we have guests lol glad u enjoyed cheers x
