Dark Temptress

Near the lobby in the great room
we first make our rendezvous.
A breathy trip up to my stateroom
and I am at last alone with you.

I sense your fragrant muskiness
as I tease off your tenuous cover
and reveal the lustrous duskiness 
of your dark body to your lover.

As your wrap falls to the floor
and in all your glory you disrobe
the hungry demon waits no more
and I encup your tempting globe.

I cannot think what may transpire...
Shall I regret today's caprice?
But I cannot vanquish my desire
and sweet passion will not cease.

Deferred until tomorrow all guilt trips
and now, oh chocolate truffle... to my lips!

February 10, 2013

Inspired by Jon Cavanaugh's "Ode to Chocolate".

Yes! Too bad I didn't have the guts to write it from a female perspective. Think of the possibilities with a candy bar!

Thanks, Andrea. I added a stanza and put it in the new contest, just so it's not exactly the same poem. You're right. It's was a pretty good fit, but even better now, I think.

Ah, but Joyce, are you sure the ending was not just a figure of speech, a metaphor for something else? Perhaps the first part was literal and the last part figurative or perhaps vice versa.....

Thanks, Jon. I had deleted this poem in error and then added it back without giving you credit for the inspiration. I have since corrected that omission. Cheers, Roy
