Bare Beauty - Poem by Shawna Michele

The hot pavement of Rodeo Drive
Is thriving, alive with the click clack
Of Louboutins, and sharp Manolos
With toes stained in Revlon red

Is this what constitutes a woman in your eyes
My curved body soft and delicate beside you sleeping
Still, you look upon me wishing for more
Imaginary allure, with vixen magic seeping

I prefer untouched nails, natural delicate feet
Naked and resting themselves along the shore
Luxuriating in the muddy mixture of sand and saltwater
An erotic blend of sensations, light and leaving the want for more

Standing soft, vulnerable, and exposed, still strong
Offering a kiss, warm and wrapped in sensuousness
Taste my lips, bare and open, a blossoming jasmine
Embracing with its natural raw earthiness

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'To where the water and the earth caress, and the down of a peach says, 'Mmh, yes.' Do I look for those millionaires like a Machiavellian girl would, when I could wear a sunset.'
-Kate Bush
The Sensual World

    Love to go back to nature. So true. Women do not need all the make up and fancy fashion. Simplicity is so often much more beautiful and attractive.

    Yes SHE has been made an commodity.........but they who have done so do not realise the powers of this beauty. Introspection is the need of the hour for the powers which she has if unleashed will wipe out this universe and the HE in he. Nice didactic effort (Report) Reply
