She asks me,
To calm the ocean storm inside of her.
To harbour in her fickle fears,
And quell her urge to fly or run away.
She asks me,
To silence her cacophony,
A chatter's choir, passion’s angry mob,
And I soft my fingerprints, a lover’s mark,
On the pout of her red, red lips.
Talk to me in confidence and whispers,
As I undo the buttons on her dress,
You have missed me.
She shifts her shoulders,
A curtain call of fabric falls free,
Floats into a pretty bunch,
Settles round and round her ankles in a heap.
Sigh as if I'm your last chance to be free, she says,
Her hands in yoga pose behind her back,
Her bra disappears,
A red memory of elastic,
Tribal indents in her skin,
Temptation’s fragrance overwhelms,
Becomes a taste.
She turns her back to me.
Her thumbs hitchhike inside her *******’ waist,
She slips them down
Steps out of them,
Naked in high heels, she pirouettes,
Hands above her head,
Stiff and brazen buds,
They point and accuse me,
Of some premeditated crime.
Her voice in echo, hardens my intent,
She offers me a carafe of oil,
Her fingers find the best of me,
Through the thin fabric of my disguise.
Make me shine she murmurs,
Make me slippery and easy to handle, she begs,
My slick hands fill with her,
And I fall fast and forward,
To slip and disappear into a passing cloud.
