NaPoWriMo – Poem / Poetry – “The Ice Maiden”

Greetings to you, lovely ladies and fine fellows.

Here we are at Day 7 of NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) and I’m still banging out these beauties like there is no tomorrow (unfortunately there is – I fricking hate deadlines but if I didn’t have one, I’d never get anything done).

So here is the link to the NaPoWriMo prompt for today:-

NaPoWriMo – One Week In

The challenge (if you can’t be bothered to click on the link above because that is an awful amount effort for you, you poor, wittle baby) is to write a love poem with a twist. Except I’m not going to tell you what the twist is until the end. You’re welcome!

“The Ice Maiden” by David Ellis

I’d go nuts over you
Skin sweeter than sugar
You’re anything but plain vanilla
So cool, you make me shiver

Our relationship started
On a rocky road
Until you became minted
I fell head over heels

Your curves rocked my world
Raising me from my troubles
We’ll go for coffee afterwards
Around you, all my entendres double

No-one could split us like bananas
Peeking at nothing but the skyline
Buttering each other up
Smooth as purest silk

It is often that I find you
Naked as the day you were born
I wrap myself in a passionate embrace
Loving how you melt beneath my touch

I’ve tried all the flavours
Everything you could possibly imagine
I’ve been to Paris, Rome, to Amsterdam
And that one with four R’s in
That no-one understands
But in the end, my good lady
You’re the only one for me

Almost bohemian
Honeycombed hair in your pretty face
With a hint of chocolate freckles
Oh, Ice Maiden, that’s how I ravish thee
From the fridge then back home to my belly

Ice Cream Flavours - what they say about you

Yes dear friends, the prompt was to write a love poem about an inanimate object!

Did I fool you? Did I? No???! You killjoy!

  1. Well – no I didn’t click the link – so had to go by what you gave – but as soon as I started reading – I *knew* you were talking about ice-cream — chuckling madly – but still – loved the imagery and sensuality of the work – makes me want to run out and grab some sweet sugar right now. 🙂
