I read an article on writing erotica, and I found a fault within seconds.
It advised me to stay oblique; because English is a language lacking in tenderness. I never noticed this with us — perhaps due to the fact we collectively could speak in a number of tongues.
It doesn’t need to be soft.
There was nothing soft about the travelling of those two multi-faceted tongues. The only softness was the tender words shared — and that I cannot put back into words of any language, no matter how hard I try.
