Curious

The more

she knows

about him

the more

she reads

about him

the more

she learns

about him

the more

curious

she becomes.

Naked Women

Art by J Dunster

Naked women

are ubiquitous on the web.

Complete strangers,

they never raise

my pulse

or catch my eye

or inspire me

or attract me

or seduce me

or excite me

or cause me to follow

or like

or connect.

.

Naked women

are ubiquitous on the web

They do nothing for me.

But the mere thought

of you

undressed

does everything,

.

Nature or Nurture?

She asks herself the question over and over again.

How could he tell from a photograph, a handful of posts, a dozen seemingly innocuous online messages?

What was it about her that had made him so certain, so confident, so sure?

How can he write himself into her head, into her heart? How can he read what she is thinking? How can he see so deep inside her? Every secret. Every wish, Every desire.

And how does he make her body react in the way that it does? Sometimes despite herself.

And where did this overpowering urge to please him come from?

Is it her nature?

Or his nurture?

I first wrote this nine years ago – the question is sometimes asked

Dancers

My dreams

are often filled

with shadows

thin echoes

sad whispers

fading ghosts.

.

But sometimes

they are filled

with dancers.

Beautiful

elegant

sensual

dancers.

.

Perhaps tonight

you will dance

for me.

Hungry taste

Art by Steve Hanks

Oh to lay kisses

on your legs

from your elegant calves

to the soft skin

of your inner thighs,

parting your lips

and filling my mouth

with your hungry taste.

Distant Presence

Your distant presence

curls around me

like smoke

like liquid

like ivy

like a cat

like a dancer

like a lover

your exquisite body

finding

the perfect fit.

.

Not a brand new post – but I like it. And the feel of your distant presence.

Unblind me

A dark, dense

unforgiving night

is stalking

this ancient house.

Its blackness

has seeped through

the leaded windows

invaded the room

stolen the light

and touched my eyes.

Only your beauty

can unblind me.

Not new – I have posted this before – but only your beauty can unblind me.

Name

Before I knew you

your name

was just

another name.

.

Now

when I see it

or hear it

or read it

or write it

I cannot help

but catch

my breath.

Berries

Outside

in today’s cold wind

I could not help but think

of you

bound with rope

your exquisite nipples

proud and erect

and as hard

as unripened berries

perfectly defined

against the material

of your dress.

And then

I thought

I had become

immune to beauty

indifferent to sexy

unmoved by submission

unstirred by intelligence

unexcited by control

untouched by desire

unaffected by dance

and then

there was you.
