You might want to build upon an image you have in your mind for each of the phases of your sexual play, as you describe. This might be a familiar image or maybe some variation on this. Maybe a less familiar image would work, given the fact you’ve been trying to write the poem for a while. Starting with some word play, might help prime the pump, for you, just a few words or phrases for any of your images. You might just try to gently evoke the image, which would then get the reader’s own imagination in play, and they would feel the images, and write the poem, in their minds. I think that the imagination is the sexiest of organs, and agree with the German idealist philosophers, from Kant to Hegel, that by using the imagination, humans improve on nature and also create something that may have more permanence than a natural object. Write again with what you’ve done, and if and when you feel ready, I’d be happy to post for you, it too.
