Limerick – Taste

A gentle swaying of hips
As hands behind firmly grip
I hold her with my gaze
Feel her fiery blaze,
Tasting her strawberry lips

Manners Maketh…

Hope this one puts a spring in your step at the start of a new week 🙂 I’ve added the audio recording here: https://audioboom.com/boos/4737400-manners

 

The dance was full and crowded
With many at the ball.
He spied her through the throng
And heard her siren call.

She’d seen him too, and thought she knew
The type of man he’d be.
Tall and dark and debonair,
Who behaved impeccably.

They met with just their fingertips;
He asked her for this dance
And led her to the dancefloor
His eyes swift-stealing a glance.

May I?” he said, and led her round
And apologised for his grace
(Specifically, the lack thereof,
And the reddening of his face)

The belle in blue was smiling too,
Never you fret, my dear
Both were manners and courtesy,
And maintained a civil veneer.

Round and round, the dance went on,
From one song to the next,
Drawing ever closer,
As the music weaved effects

Her skin was pale and perfect,
But there was fire in those eyes.
A playful smile upon those lips,
And all that that implies.

He leaned in close, drank in her scent,
And whispered in her ear
Some words I will not share with you,
But whose intentions were so clear.

He led her from the dancefloor:
They weren’t seen the rest of the day.
Manners will take you so far,
Then devil the rest of the way.

Haiku – Top & Light

For those in love:

On top of the world
Looking down on creation
Love’s light everywhere

For those in lust:

Turn the lights down low
Pull me close, whisper secrets
Tear this top from me…

For those who have both… don’t brag about it! 🙂

Love Haiku #5

21
Ran five miles home,
A long sprint to hide my shame;
A longer shower

22
An empty vessel.
I won’t miss you when you’re gone
I tell myself now

23
Last look through the door.
My heart stretched to breaking point
To see you with him

24
A look, lingering
Slices through my defences,
Leaves my wound exposed

25
My sun and my sin,
Guiding me through moonless night
Blinding me to faults

26 – For Emma
Purple skirt kisses
Next to the bar quiz machine
You looked amazing

Love Haiku #4

16
Forbidden kisses
In the snow that Christmas Eve,
Furtive magic fell

17
Your love engorges
The heart’s necrotic chambers
With just a smile

18
I had brought you wine;
A thousand apologies.
Your heart’s course was set

19
Frozen heart shatters
Reflecting crystalline love
In her baby blues

20
Bitten by your ghost
Ethereal reminders
Liquefy reason
