Best laundry solution ever!
Best laundry solution ever! | Source

Slipping into the past like a burglar,

Quietly and slowly I opened my closet.

Enchanted by what is hanging neatly,

Beautiful, glamorous and colorful outfits.


Some have been worn once or twice,

Some barely even touch, few still carries tag.

There quite hidden in the back is a pretty black dress.

A gift from someone close to my heart.


But I was in limbo then and so it was tossed,

Kept in the closet and eventually forgotten.

Glitz and glam in my head but if I may confess,

I fret this pretty black dress may not fit anymore.


For all its cost I tossed it back in the closet,

An instance of tweaking though I know I am no weakling.

I peeked and it's wicked - this pretty black dress,

Staring and daring and so hypnotizing.


Just like my first quasi-sexual experience,

I pushed and pulled this deadly black dress off.

Gently and slowly allowing its’ softness to touch me.

Lovely, it fits, it fits, it fits so very well!


After so many years 'am I four gram less?

Now, I am all so ready but where is the party?

No invitation, no special occasion.

Oh no, do not be distressed!


I say save the pretty black dress Asian bird,

Hold tight tonight for a quasi-sexual night.

And while you wait for your man face your fate woman,

Gather your strength and the courage to load.


So no pretty black dress but with my black boots instead,

I faced my ordeal and the truth was revealed.

With my strong conviction for color coding I started loading,

The bin's over flowing in the laundry room where I was standing.

      Well first off, you look beautiful in you black dress. What is it about black dresses that us men go google over? The colour is passionate to say the least, the way it clings so sensually to the body occupying it and of course the cut of the cloth and length worn ever so short the very best way. Yes indeed laundry day approaches us all and decisions are a bore. I often have to decide what piece of my all black closet I will wear today. Beautifully expressed, BTW those boots were made for walking along with that tiny Black beauty worn above them. Voted up beautiful, awesome and of course very interesting.

      CrisPp ~ I'm fearful of suggesting it all went downhill from here, please don't infer that because it's not the case - but I do want to tell you, I thought . . .

      "Slipping into the past like a burglar"

      . . . was easily the best line, the best carried over notion, of the whole piece . . . it made want to happily continue on with you.

      CrisSp, you personified your garment so very well. I am sure if every thread or stain from use could speak we could listen for hours. I think that it is so interesting that I was considering to do a piece about clothing as well... Well done, I am sure your wardrobe's accessories are calling out for your written attention as well!

      Hey; this is a nifty verse, and well written, I thought.

      There are very few sights that beat seeing a beautiful girlfriend in such alluring attire;let's hope one isn't dressed up with nowhere to go :)

      Hi CrispSp...yes, all women should have that one LBD for that one very special occasion ...like doing the laundry, lol. There is something so sexy about the LBD, it actually transforms us women, makes us feel so beautiful, sexy and oh-so feminine..or maybe it's just me. Great poem!

      He Crisp....

      It is a black poem….. Boots and all

      If it fits …

      Loved the moment of black you created

      A dress to the world….. Small and black in nature

      Now me being silly to the moon. A reflection

      Dressed in black…….perhaps nurture will take it’s role!!

      Enjoyable poem Cris and brought a smile to my face. You certainly got some nice compliments on both the poem, and the pic of you wearing the little black dress (all deserving I might add). You have been visiting my hubs so I thought it only fair I had a browse through some more of yours. I may be slow but I like to savour fine writing...lol. Keep up the good work.

      Hi Jodah! Thank you so much for coming back here and for checking out on me. Yeah, been in a semi-hiatus on HP. Just overwhelmed with stuff outside HP. Annual training on the ground, which recently just concluded. Oh wait, we still have to do First Aid refresher next week. :) I personally miss HP too and the lovely people here. I admit, I do peep once in a while but just unable to comment on the creative and wonderful works of our fellow hubbers like you. Will catch up soon and thanks again. I really do appreciate your message. See you around HP (again). Love from the sky~

      CrisSp,

      Lovely poem. I think most of us women (and I guess some men, too : - )have at least one little black dress and are aware of the power which comes from putting on that dress. Putting on that dress can be empowering if you can still fit into it and heartbreaking when you don't fit into it anymore. Personally, I have quite a bit of black in my wardrobe that I have accumulated over time. For me, it is its neutrality which allows me to take almost any color and use as an accent. V+ for sure.

      you look stunning in that black dress, and the way you described its experience with it is commendable. I really enjoyed it!

      Doing laundry is one of my favorite chores, I see that you are not as fond of it as i am because you called it an "ordeal". Nevertheless I see you enjoyed it in the end!

      I absolutely love this poem! And, I love your little black dress - don't get rid of that! LOL! I love the metaphor of 'sorting through your life' by sorting the laundry. Brilliant! And this reminds me - I have sorting to do of my own! LOL! Voted up and shared.

      That was neat, and different. It seemed to have that - something - about it. It was also very interesting, the way that you said the lines just made the reader curious as to what came next. Voted up!
