Lies on the bed
soft and black
shot through with silken thread
black velvet brocade on the back

I shower first
taking care as usual
my mind perusing the worst
habit forming now a ritual

first it's hot then it's cold
pulsating water rains on me
now warm to touch, soft to hold
tingling, alive with energy

Opium, the perfume lingers
luxuriating in being female
can smell it on my fingers
I know it will leave a trail

Now to the rest
what to wear underneath?
as my glance wanders to this dress
silk stockings, they'll fit like a sheath

slipping the dress over my head
smoothing it down, fits like a glove
pearls at my throat knotted down my back
now my hair should it be down or up?

reflected image likes up the best
lastly the earrings and I slip on my shoes
doorbell rings...
he looks and swallows...
I smile knowing his eyes will follow....

Sigh... I wish I had a sensuous, seductive, sexy little black dress... Heavy sigh... I wish I had a body to wear a sensuous, seductive, sexy little black dress... RG's might fit my ankle. *S* Still heavier sigh... I wish I had someone to wear such a dress for, someone who'd remove it with his eyes before his fingers ever moved... and like the lack even better. Sigh, sigh, sigh....

Gee thanks, RG... *G*

I'll lend you my dress anytime, as for the rest: when looking at a rainbow, dreams always come true, for there are no clouds only sunshine and that's my dream for you!
