The female figures of Ellora – with small faces, firm and full breasts, narrow waist, wide hips and long thighs – are a treat for the eye and the senses.

The not-so-gentle tug inside my insides,
The time has come to give up some blood,
To feel all woman,all mother-someday-to-be,
God punished,cursed,Eve accepted,shamed.
O but the sheer joy of being a woman,
The laughter of a girl-woman mensturating,
The quiet cry of a girl in monthly pain-
Would I give all this up to be a man?
Never!not as long as the world will be,
For there’s power and beauty in womanhood
THere’s strength and romance,love and zeal.
Tiny goblets,huge clots,all mine,all Earth’s.

shall i with my gallant manhood
have a not-so-gentle tug inside ur insides
the time has come to give up some life
to feel all woman and man together as one
god punished,cursed,adam n eve accepted,shamed
o but the sheer joy of being together
the laughter of a woman in my arms
the satisfaction in being inside you as u cry
would we give all this up to be alone?
never!not as long as the world is ours
for there’s power and beauty in togetherness
there’s strength and romance, love and zeal
tiny goblet,huge clots,let retreat for a while
let life a new begin, between us, inside us
