55 words of poetry...







on friday, compose a short story of 55 words - no more,
no less. if you want to join in the fun and give it a
try...post your story and report it to G-man





movement

in the shadows
slow,
deliberate

the still of night
disturbed on a
sigh

discarded clothes
rustle to the floor,
an edgy silence
broken

you've come
as promised

have I made
a mistake?

reassure me

ease my jagged
nerves; soothe
me

with a sharp
twist of
silk

bind me

with the
illusion of your
touch

~

Love,

  8. You'
    re right, I did miss this one. I must have. Because otherwise I'd have had to say something keenly insightful.

    Like... "Rawr!"

    Whew! If I hadn't already been running a fever Friday night, I certainly would've been after this.

  10. To heck with the illusion, I'll take the real thing. Is this illicit?
