Leather Jacket

Leather jacket draped over her shoulders
My feeble attempt at gallantry
Protecting sweet maiden from the cold
A small smile spreads over her face

My feeble attempt at gallantry
Still I longed for the rain to reveal her breasts
A small smile spreads over her face
The rain would have soaked her blouse

Still I longed for the rain to reveal her breasts
The fabric clinging to those lovely curves
The rain would have soaked her blouse
We ran together my hand around her waist

The fabric clinging to those lovely curves
I could feel her softness my heart pounding
We ran together my hand around her waist
Coming to rest under an old oak tree

I could feel her softness my heart pounding
She allowed my hands to explore
Coming to rest under an old oak tree
Lips joined as my jacket fell to the ground

She allowed my hands to explore
My feeble attempt at Gallantry
Created the moment that brought me here
A small smile spreads over her face


I broke the Pantoum form with the very last line but
I prefer it this way. Besides, my hands were already engaged.

    Thanks Connie, I kind of like this one myself. Mind you I have other poems I enter and they don't make it on the list so you never can tell what will catch the judges eye.

    Richard you could have won this with a "I don't know" form! The only thing bad about it is NOW I have to go take a cold shower! Damn Boy!

    It looks like your attempt at gallantry was a solid one. Koodos to you for the imagery and brilliant use of repetition.

    ... my feeble attempt at gallantry. I really, really liked this line! It's like an average joe putting on the face of a noble knight. And as far as the rules go, the story wouldn't have made much sense in the end (if you kept to them anyway). That's the tricky part, methinks. Enjoyed this one very much!
