The Date (Part 2) - Poem by Dee Daffodil

The night went well
She had brains and personality
To match her beauty
They drank Merlot
At her suggestion
Though he himself,
Preferred beer

They talked,
They laughed
Hell...they even sang
How long had it been
Since he had acted this way
He was giddy with glee
Was it the wine?

More than once during the evening,
Her toe had snuck up under his pantleg
Like a snake seeking warmth
Sending chills up and down his spine

By the end of the evening
He was completely
Under her spell
But the truth was
That he was
More than a little nervous

When he walked her home
She invited him in
At first, he said 'no, I really should go'
But those big brown doe eyes
Were pleading so...
She kissed him
Softly at first
Then with more urgency
After a playful little nip
Just under his ear,
She had convinced him

She brought life back to
Parts of his body
He hadn't felt in years
At felt like years.

It wasn't until the next morning
When he returned home
From his 'business trip'..
That he reflected on the fact
That he had no reflection
In the mirror...

Now how would he explain
That one...
To the wife? ? ! !

    I am thinking that he has a little time,
    as long as the wife is not named Buffy!

    This was great fun, Dee. If only he had worn protection (at least around his neck) .

    The playful little nip just under the ear...that was a bit of a clue! Loved it, though, and the eerie ending when he couldn't see his reflection in the mirror. A great Halloween poem, Dee. Please write some will be Christmas soon, hint, hint...

    Love, Fran xxx
