Random Poem:

Slip of the Tongue
mgill

He will dominate;
 1
His heart racing
 2
as he surveys
 3
chicane like curves
 4
atop home straight legs,
 5
striking beneath her
 6
black designer dress.
 7
Primal instinct awakened,
 8
libido mounting
 9
her hurriedly, self
 10
satisfaction his only goal.
 11
She will beg him,
 12
praise him, extol his
 13
virtues as the sexual
 14
athlete he envisions in
 15
his mind's eye.
 16
He will be her God.
 17
 
 
He wants only her body...
 18
 
 
She may acquiesce;
 19
His soft, plush lips
 20
nestled between hard cheeks,
 21
resting upon the stark lines
 22
of a reclineresque jaw.
 23
Visions of his caress,
 24
like silky gossamer
 25
on a childs skin.
 26
Her body tingling,  
 27
vibrant beneath his
 28
firm manly strokes.
 29
Soul, body, heart
 30
and mind connected,
 31
at the point of their
 32
simultaneous arrival.
 33
 
 
She wants his heart and soul...
 34
 
 
A half closed cat's eye hangs
 35
in the face of the heavens,
 36
at night's nadir
 37
and the zenith of morning.
 38
Retired to her apartment,
 39
imbibing caffiene,
 40
relaxing intensely before
 41
the warmth of the fire.
 42
 
 
Size 16 words
 43
uttered sofly,
 44
conveyed on warm breath
 45
towards a size 8 ear.
 46
Like the glistening,
 47
dew tipped rapier  
 48
of whispered hedonistic intent.
 49
They gather pace,
 50
between mouth and ear,
 51
becoming frigid, frozen
 52
as an arctic wind,
 53
and penetrate the soft,
 54
distended, velvet pillow
 55
of unvoiced expectation.
 56
 
 
Her hopes in shreds,
 57
cheeks and nose becoming
 58
fertile riverbeds, carrying
 59
tributaries of brine away
 60
from overflowing resevoirs
 61
of blue and white,
 62
she brings proceedings to
 63
a premature end.
 64
 
 
No numbers exchanged,
 65
appetite unsated,
 66
he makes an
 67
anonymous, silent exit,
 68
already planning his next
 69
failure.
