An Aries and Libra

Shadows displayed,

as soft music played,

her blue eyes

were riveted to his,

as their bodies swayed,

he wasn’t immune

to what those eyes conveyed,

there was no harm,

just her beauty and charm,

and her gaze spoke volumes,

those volumes begged for romance,

as they continued the slow dance,

feelings would fold,

and love took hold,

one might call it a test,

her head cradled softly

on his chest,

then the lips invaded,

as the sheen of her lipstick faded,

one love, full moon, low light,

as their romance

filled the night.

Aries man and Libra woman ~ Yes, strong attraction. Unfortunately - in many cases - the Libra woman, always trying to restore balance, extinguishes the fire in Aries.

Sowwy!

Oh, you must forgive this Aries girl for being so bold by posting a 'negative' comment :)

This is a beautiful, no, awesome poem in the shades of erotica!

Frank Atanacio 4 years ago from Shelton Author

Very different from your genre. I like surprises. Had it been about a sagittarius, it may have gotten flagged as graphic as well...

I hate limitations. If you ever take your flagged writing somewhere else please let me know. I will chk it out.

This was so very nice

I had to read it twice

To check for any twist

That I may have missed.

You surprised me in the end:

No killers, just two friends...

An Aries and a Libra?

I wouldn't of believed ya,

'cept my sis is a 'Justice' ma'am

and I sir, am a stubborn Ram.

So let Romance bloom for these two

Your audience is pleased...bravo for you!

Thoroughly enjoyed this one and like so many others, was pleasantly surprised at this side shining through. Rated up and Awesome.
