Petals

Rose petals litter the bed
like little red clichés,
but all I notice is the light -

peeking between the fingers that cover my sight
as you guide me forward with your hips;

shining from your eyes,
a shy pride and something sweeter;

silhouetting my hand catching yours reaching for the lamp.

"Let's leave it on."

55 words for my G-Man!

I'm all for that highest candle that lights the dark. Erotic, and also tender, you are never flashy but always full of light when you write on this subject.

Love the rose petals as little red cliches. Some cliches are too good not keep around :)
