I Don't Do Crazy

I Don't Do Crazy

Over the top
180 degree rotations

Not at all
what I want from my summer
Let's just take a step back
recall what was good
and go on our separate

You had me
until the chain was broken.
Glitter on the floor mat
a reminder
of broken vows,
failed endeavors.

I see now
how foolish I was,
what my friends
attempted to tell me.

No time for this,
I have other plans.
You have written yourself
out of my itinerary.

Be well.
Just not with me.

Morning light
breaks thru
last night's storm clouds

You sigh,
roll over,
and the sheet
leaves your body.

I drink in your beauty
with my eyes
adoring you
listening to your
soft, slow breathing

I move stealthily
my lips
trail along your
delicate curves
tasting the salty
remnants of last night's

We matched the
Gods' exhortations
with our own
collapsing before dawn

I recall gathering you near,
then nothing 'til now
Love's amnesia
erasing any dreams

I prefer this
waking pleasure
until you rouse.

I offer her praise
describing her attributes
calling her:

I adorn her
with my words
as does the fine chain
about her neck
dangling a pendant
that draws my eyes
to her exquisite throat

She demurs my accolades,
rolling her eyes,
only grudgingly accepting
my gestures and words

Her mellifluous voice
encourages me
to demonstrate
my adoration
          a gentle kiss
          a tender touch
          a more passionate nibble
at her silken flesh

As my fingers caress
her desire becomes evident
A more sensual application
of lips to pale skin
leads to encouragement
I proceed unhurriedly
savoring her treasures
imagining the pleasures
that await
Someday and soon
