|Your skin wasn't tan
George Hamilton you weren't...
maybe even slightly pasty with
teeth that were a bit on the
You didn't smell like success
nor were you husky and strong.
Despite the best data
psychologists could find,
proving what women are drawn
to in a man, I fell for you.
It was an attraction
that had no bearing on
sense or reason...
It didn't look good on paper--
in fact, it resembled a
caustic carnal canvas of concrete
spitting its rebellious
graffiti on convention's walls.
Turns out I didn't want your protection,
your courage, your clarity
or your pearly whites--
No, just your love's light
on my pale skin...
Then I forgot the sunscreen.
My inspiration... Spring Fever exists and it makes a difference in who we chose as our lovers... Check it out:

This is excellent! A wonderful mix of fact and whimsy, told with a droll sense of humor and a 'splat on me' energy that is both sad and hysterical.
I know... part of me is peeing my pants laughing when I read this and the other is going, "This is SO sad!"
Gorgeous George and his mirror have been immortalised here
He was great in "Love at First Bite" with Lauren Hutton. Now THAT was a HOT vampire movie.
Yes, very well written aforbing. I love the ending--the whole thing made me chuckle--not an easy thing to do on this site most of the time.
I love this too, but , while i was reading this and before I got to the comments, i realy thought this was Isabelle's work... and I don't mean to offend or flatter either party... just an honest opinion.
Interesting observation... IMC and I are good friends outside of this website. Altho we are on different sides of the continent, we are kindred spirits. Our work has many similarities. I am flattered and hopefully she would be likewise honored by your comparison. I will definitely say that Miss Isabelle is really a more accomplished poet than myself, however.
