'Demure' - Poem by Kelly Seale

Chastise me. Punish me if you will-
Demure eyes peeking through, soft politeness-
Sophistication.
Knowing eyes, that whisper silently-
'Keep still.'

God's Holy sunset, lurking behind your smile,
decadent and starving-
Untouched by my lips, my hands, and all the while
teasing me with your delicate, sweet perfume,
making me dizzy.

You laugh, and run your hand through your hair,
unconsciously twirling a strand around a finger-
Then you look up, and catch me in my stare.
Embarrassed and innocent; yet, our glances exchanged
and for a moment, linger.

Passion stirs within me,
and a promising fantasy begins.
I watch your body move to the drumbeat,
as the music filters in-

The rhythm of the bass guitar,
the sexy wail of the saxaphone,
the singer's words echo my thoughts-
To be near you, somewhere all alone.

I'm lost within your soul,
as I watch your body dance,
the singer's words echo my thoughts-
'Baby, it's time for romance.'


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sometimes, (alot actually) I get carried away with romantic words, romantic gestures... and Love. I'm in love with love.

    Captivating beginning. Excellent storytelling. Clever ending. But would we expect anything less from the Seale? lol ;) Thanks for sharing. (Report)Reply
