Letting Her Down Easy

He let her down easy
He didn’t want to hurt her
Gently, gently he drew away
A little more everyday
He was a gentleman
And would never make
Her little heart pay
For his BIG mistake...

So he let her down easy
Easy…easy…easy….
Slowly…slowly…he’d recede
Till he’d fade away
Gently…gently…she’d never know
The emotional investment too high
More than he bargained for
Not an easy ride
He let her down easy…

Little did he know
That while he was perfecting the show
Someone saw her beauty
And was laying her down gently
Gently…gently
Nice and slow
Laying her down gently...tilting her head
Closing his lips over her mouth
Investment of all his time
And heart besides….
Laying her down gently
A real gentleman
Making her feel 
His words were real
Laying her down real slow
Making love to her
Gently...gently….
Nice and S L O W
Laying her down
Loving the sound
Listening to her moan
Laying her down..... 
G E N T L Y.....

    I have made changes to my Ice King Poem. I understand what you are saying although in spirit I do not feel dark merely it is the subject matter that speaks to me in the way that I have expressed it. Do not be concearned Eileen. Hugs Rick.

    This goes deep..Whilst someone is cutting of ribbons gently with her not to hurt her feelings..Someone else is loving her gently and making up for his fading away..Do i get it?Very deep thoughts penned..sweet lady

    Well, I try to follow the KISS principle! I learned it once at a seminar on radio programming. KISS...acronym for KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID! ;) Never did forget it. Glad the simplicity was evident here....

    Where are you getting your inspiration from my little desert Orchid lol. People can always change their minds you know. Take care, Richard

    It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind. Some stereotypes are good! Depends what you are changing your mind about, Mr. Seal....A person can't really change his/her mind on issues of honor, when his/her word has been given about something...well, it happens but...not cool...Holiday plans can change with the shifting positions of the sun...no galactic consequences....Glad the same things inspire you...I...GUESS! ;)

    Same I guess. People can change their minds about anything and often do. Like someone who is going on holiday then doesn't sort of thing :):)

    This was a shy & subtle slow dance, with the sudden dip in the end. Diggin' this.
