As a lady moves by ....

Like the magic scent of a camp fire
and a nightime sky of drifting smoke
How does a man speak about women
without it becoming another joke
Does he say " I'm intoxicated just being round
her hair
that perfume
her glistening flesh"
Or "I've always been mesmerized
unable to speak
to dance
to caress"
Does he speak of her curves her walk
her sexual after glow
No .....he stands speechless
and silently learning
Watching each one a perfectly
formed angel
all her own
Yet even when they fake the smile
the laugh ......
They keep every part of
a man yearning
So as the others whistle and call
and banter around
I will just stand and watch
as the ladies move by

Is this what really goes on in a man's head? If this is the case then I will sleep soundly tonight. This is so beautiful and real. I've seen men struggle expressing these beautiful thoughts for fear that it will somehow lessen him; if only he could understand that these are the words we die to hear.

What woman in her right mind wouldn't melt at these incredibly wonderful words? Wow, Ed! Boing-ng-ng!!

(You devil, you. . . ;-) There's no vote for devilish, though, so I'll use all the others but funny, especially 'awesome'!)

Oops - the intended phrase was: 'Boeing-Boeing-ng-ng' - - translating into, "Wow, that's HOT", in today's terminology. ;-)

My mother always said---still waters run deep. A man who just looks is not always bashful ---he may be waiting for the right one.

A sweet poem to share---thanks.
