Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

Come Nightime.

I shyly wear modesty all the day.
Dressed in decorum,
........... composure all smiles.
Unworded thinking will lying allay.
Winsomely charming,
............... my acting beguiles.

Come nightime I shrug off my fine veneer.
Passion meets passion
.................as you blanket me.
With awesome abandon,
.................. worn without fear,
Different perspectives of me become free.

Night cannot come soon enough for us two.
In realms of dreamtime
............unleashed we remain.
Gliding through paradise is bliss with you.
Tomorrow will see me
....................... in order again.

    Hi Fay - You exquisitly describe the perfect lady all men desire an alternative title would be 'For Your Eyes Only'! I love beautiful ladies (like you) who 'Dress in Decorum' (is that a new matrial?) during the day - keeping their unique charm for their chosen lover. Verse two is really emotive and the (covert) vision of shedding your decorum to reveal your hidden beauty - leaves us breathless. 'Awesome Abandon' is not just allieration it is an expression of the change fome 'winsomeness V 1' to 'wanteness V 2'! Verse Three is a fitting 'climax' and the language is masterly. 'Realms of dreamtime' 'Unleashed we remain! ' 'Gliding through Paradise' so so evocative. I love the last line and it is a tribute of the capacity of beautiful ladies to veil their pleasures in public. 'Tomorrow will see me in order again'. Please keep pleasuring us with these lovely poems - TEN. Love you in Peotry - JOHN. (Report) Reply
