Inside Out

Artwork:  By, TheFlyTrapMan, artist for the Slasher Monster Magazine, and drawn specifically for my poem, Inside Out, for which I’m truly grateful.

The poem “Inside Out”, is more just a rhyme and a play on a few featured words. Over the road from were I once lived, there was a furniture shop, and the advertising hoarding was, “Inside Out, Exotic Furniture”, well I was sitting there waiting for the bus, and in my minds imagination, I changed the the words to “Inside-out, Upside-down, Erotic Furniture”, and hence my little anecdote was laid….

Inside Out


The view of my love seems upside down.

When I’m at the bottom of her flowing gown.

And my erotic picture appears inside out.

What’s this scenic love all about.


The ways of my love seem upside down.

When she’s on top, covering me ’til I drown.

And I’m underneath, neither in, nor out.

What’s this crazy love all about.


The river of my love seems upside down.

When I’m sitting inside her smiling frown.

And her foreign body hits me in and out.

What’s this exotic love all about.


The world of my love seems upside down.

When I’m laying below her pounding mound.

And her endless thrusts, feel inside out.

What’s this frenzied love all about.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Oh la la, Ivor. This is different. I love the picture. And the way you have turned yours thoughts inside out to reveal a more basic love, which feels no less spiritual, despite the franticness.

    Lovely to see you shivering at the end of the post. You will be glad to know the weather is much warmer here today, already 19.5. Hooray!

    1. Geelong is very much the southern part of Australia, but unusually colder than normal for this coastal town. And yes, it was a fun write for me, and good to do something different ♡

  2. Thank you Ivor, for something a little different, interesting, but very good.The secret to a great poet/writer is to be able to write different things, and still catch you’re readers attention. Its 85 Fahrenheit here, or 30 celsius where you are. keep warm.


      1. Ah, my sweet friend, it’s in the 80’s F here, so no warming up needed for me. I’m working on a poem, inspired by one of your works, which I’ll be posting in a few days. Perhaps that will warm you up some?


  3. “and hence my little anecdote was laid….” — Very funny! Thanks for sharing my title card. I must admit that I modified and colorized an existing clipart graphic, and then added the text. Poet Rummager helped, too. Let me know if you need more graphics or images. Thanks!
