Undress my night
with soft supplications
poised between lips
that promise riots
and teach my heart
the fine art of mayhem.
Let your face be the candle
that breaks the dark
and slides the giddy stars
under my thumb
to have and hold
so I can trace them across your hips
where dreams beckon
and the night grows rude
with wanting.
For Victoria

Deliciously sensual Brendan. It has the feel of a lazy summer evening and as always your imagery is fabulous.

Are you sure there isn't a second one of you to spare?
