Going Down

Updated on August 9, 2013
Source

The glittering gold strap of her blouse

blended deeply into her bronzed shoulder

trailing a wet rivulet down.

My eyes follow the path of the stream

disappearing into my fantasies dream.

Perspiration on her brow shines

like the eyeshadow on her lid.

I caught her looking down

now she meets my gaze

her pupils dilating

into a sensual craze.

My own wander down

to that place between

her earring

and collarbone.

A bead of sweat

nectar so sweet

how I would like to kiss her there

and my eyes wander down

to that place between

her collarbone

and the rise of her breast.

Oh, I yearn to kiss her there

and my eyes wander down

to that place.

Oh, to kiss her there

to run my fingers through

her amber hair

I can tell

she has styled all day

but in this humid room

demands to be free.

With French painted nails

she fans her dampened face.

Her stare is locked on me now

as a predator on prey.

She is panting

In time with my breath.

Our mouths open

like animals.

I want to take her down

she wants me to take her down

I want her to take me down

she wants to take me down

I want to go down

she wants me to go down.

The air-conditioning repair man called;

He can't make it tonight

so we've made arrangements

for a cool hotel downtown.

The decisions been made;

We can't take the heat.

We're going down!

      Well the last time I went down there, Sir Wayne, Ronald Reagan was your president , so now I am just a born again virgin , but that said, certainly no virgin to your world class poetry and that makes me one of the luckiest (and most astute) readers here at the Hub for knowing of your brilliance ..... lake erie time ontario canada 3:20pm

      Wow! This is amazing. I was pulled through by the sensual motion of your words. I was lost on your poem. My heart just about came out of my chest. I love the body parts you chose to focus on - hair, eyes, and those places between. They are so sexy.... And then that ending! Very clever... You are absolutely oneof my favorite poets. Thanks for another great one.

      Sir Colin: if you are a virgin, there are going to be a lot of very upset terrorists when they arrive in heaven, LOL. Thank you so much for your very kind words. You are a gentleman!

      Really well done, had us going, devouring the words, wanting more, more, but that hotel idea is great!

      Voted up and funny but amusingly so. You have given the adult version of what happens in summer heat I guess the teen version is when you go to the movies to neck and pet. I stamp this one erotically tempting.
