The Allowance



I could let you hold my hand,
if I so choose.
More than a childish cling
the start of a joining.
This I would allow

I would let you,
pull me in,
wrapping your arms around me,
vine-like and safe,
this I would allow.

I may let you kiss me.
A gentle kiss,
no more and no less,
soft and exploratory, this
I may allow.

And I would let you
hold my face
as you kissed my neck
little by little.
This I could allow.

I might then let you look
into my eyes.
Just a glimpse,
a brief encounter that
will let you know
just how much more
I would allow.

Absolutely lovely, Minx! And sublimely sensual!

Now that is really pretty. I like that a lot.
Makes me want to be a gentleman.

Oooh, am I bringing out your inner soppiness?

Thanks, Elaine, this verse came from watching a couple flirting in the pub!

Minx said...

She was indeed longing, Muley, I watched her subtlety sending out signals which he steadfastly refused to acknowledge, or did he?

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Minx,

Sounds like he was missing the signal...

I had hoped that you were the Minx in the poem...

Minx said...

I would hope that my flirting would be a bit more effective, Scarlett, hahahaha!
I am far too busy to let a man near my flirty bits and I'm still concentrating on forging a new life. Maybe soon...

Nice one Minx!

Minx said...

Far from perfect, Debi, just some thoughts.

This is never the wrong blog, John G, and you know it!

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Absolutely beautiful, Minx.

Minx said...

Thanks, Vanilla, one day I might let someone hold my hand again!

Reads like a whisper (or a cat's purr), with a pace like that of slow foreplay (beginning with the eyes, later with a bit of a dance, hmm). ;) Cheers.

Hang on, UU, I've only just come to terms with the holding hands bit!
