A Riff on Yor's Erato


Never take a Muse as lover
They lay still beneath the covers
They surely stiffen at your touch
They do not like the body much;

They prefer to be cerebral
Their bodies boney and quite feeble;
Approach her with a reverent mind,
And don't pat her on bare behind

    David - Lost the battle

    Her body’s curvaceous design so wondrous and divine
    with contours all neat and so fine captures this heart of mine.
    Confronted by beauty like this I just cannot resist
    to succumb to her world of bliss and surrender to loves kiss. (Report) Reply
