Sweetheart, Your Lips The Only Honey I Will Taste - A collaboration with Robert Lindley

Sweetheart, Your Lips The Only Honey I Will Taste


Bright heaven's night skies, in your eyes once were,
agleam they glittered, gems as you danced free;
my darling, sad you once thought I loved her
oh how that sexy vixen did chase me!

Her lies about our night trysts at the lake
she said we did commingle on white sand;
I know the pain they gave, was hard to take 
her vicious calls to you worse to withstand!

I give you this, our hearts both love entwine
your lips the only honey I will taste;
my love-life’s yours, as only your’s is mine,
so please, lets live and love, let’s not time waste.

Your lips the only honey I will taste.
So please, lets live and love, let’s not time waste!

Temptress: Your Lips The Only Honey I Will Taste


My tongue tells lies to get me what I want
and longs to taste the sweets of your desire,
I’ll tempt you and your woman I will taunt;
behold this tigress striped in passion’s fire.

I have no shame in stalking you, my prey,
my green eyes have you surely in my sight,
I watch and pray that from her you will stray;
upon you with my purr I will alight!

If prayers don’t work I have a backup plan..
I’ll tell her of us when her back was turned -
a sly seductress always gets her man,
as if by magic when the truth is blurred.

My claws will hook you given half the chance,
beguiling rumors charm with their snake dance...


Robert J. Lindley and Susan Ashley

It is always a pleasure to receive your precious comments, Lawrence. Robert’s golden inspiration works miracles on my muse, we often joke that our muses must be sisters or at the very least, cousins.. lol! His shining verses led the way, as they always do :) Thank you, my friend. Warmest wishes always.. ~Susan

Indeed, George, who could doubt Robert’s fidelity... but a lying temptress can sure cause a stir, that’s for sure. I relish your precious comments and your wonderful presence. Robert’s talent is golden and he is always a pure delight to write with. Thank you, my inspiring friend. Warmest wishes always.. ~Susan

My dear friend, your verses are dead on the mark for the way the lying temptress acted. I am glad that my opening gave you such wondrous inspiration and insight into the course of events that unfolded. Sad is it not, that such people exist and attempt to destroy other people's lives? Always an honor to write with you!
