Two things:
     - First, the disclaimer: Before anyone covers their virginal eyes (lol) and scolds me for not putting this in the "adult" forum, this poem is not about phone sex.
     - Second, I couldn't have written this without the inspiration of DGVarner, fellow Passions poet and proud owner of the Sleep Around Phone (heh heh). This one's for you, Gale!
----------------------------------------------------

Late at night when I'm all alone
and fantasies of her run through my head
I call her on the Sleep-Around-Phone
that she keeps close by her bed
Listening to her every word
captivated by every sound
Wishing I could see what I just heard
So much fun to do it on the sleep around
Sleep-Around-Phone

It's just an innocent game we play
when we flirt and taunt and tease
and when she laughs in that oh so sexy way
She knows that I'm eager to please
She brings me so much happiness
and makes me smile when I'm feeling down
It's such a thrill; I must confess
when we do it on the sleep around
Sleep-Around-Phone

We keep saying that we should meet
and I admit, that sounds so inviting
though sleeping around just can't be beat
doing it in person sounds a little bit frightening
No more plastic hand piece to touch
What will I wrap my fingers around?
Talking mouth to mouth might be too much
If we're not doing it on the sleep around
Sleep-Around-Phone

Jeff,
consider me highly disappointed that this isn't about phone sex..

LOL about "what will i wrap my fingers around?" i can so relate to that! i normally carry a ring or some other fancy accessory so that i can play with them whenever i get bored or nervous..heehee

Jeff--

Sounds like phone sex to me.  But then, what do I know?

faterider, Bridget,
     Do you always believe those disclaimers? (winks) Seriously though, Bridget, this poem is actually a play on words that works as a double entendre' (and I will admit that I intended it that way). Maybe this will spoil the "magic" for some, but I'll go ahead and explain the inspiration for this poem lest someone else also misinterpret it as sexual - and Faterider, you are right on the money about the "wrap my fingers" line - I'm the same way; when I get nervous, I need to do something with my hands. Glad you caught that!
     dgvarner has a portable phone that she usually keeps close to her bed. When I call, she will let me know whether or not she is on that phone because her running joke/tease is that we're talking on the "Sleep Around" phone. I've been taunting her for months that I was going to write a poem about what she calls her phone. Initially, when writing this, I intended for it to be a sexual ditty, but upon actually putting the words on paper, I realized that for me, her and I's phone conversations were a way for me to maintain a "safe" distance between us as I have been, ummm.. shall we say "fascinated" with her for some time even though we both lead happy separate lives. This poem was my way of saying "Deep conversations and teasing flirtations are all well and good when done via the telephone but what would happen if we were to actually talk face to face?" The internet and the telephone allows people to interact anonymously but all bets are off when meeting in person. Chemistry is powerful and the eyes don't lie!
    She's going to kill me for spilling the beans... lol

ok. . . all this explaining is just too deep for me Jeff. . . better to let my mind play with these words and let me come to my own twisted conclusions. . . disclaimers be damned!!  

now. . . why do I keep hearing this as a song??

Cuz it is a song   And if you heard the music to this, I'd have a hard time maintaining that this is not erotica! lol (Can you tell that I have listened to Prince one too many times?)

Glad you enjoyed loner!

Jeff,
so that's why gale hasn't been at these blue pages for a while? stop hogging her!

my humble opinion..if you feel comfortable about spilling the beans, i think it means that the two of you have reached a certain stage in your friendship/relationship(?)..i really think that the chemisty won't cease when you get to meet each other in person...

"fascinated" huh? keep up the good work buddy..and all the best to you two..

Ok, now I'm going to fall out of my chair in gales of laughter. Lest the gossip fiends of these pages run off at the mouth after viewing this thread, let me emphasize that DGVarner and myself are not, nor have ever been an "item". We are both leading happy separate lives with our respective significant others. This poem is merely an affirmation of my affection for her, cloaked in a flight of fancy and creative exercise.   
     Boy am I gonna get an earful when Gale gets here! (rotfl)

Roomers? Really..you and D are roomers?


OHHHH!! YOU SAID RUMORS!


Why, Jeffey..for a moment there I thought..well..THE NERVE OF YOU TALKING TO ANOTHER WOMAN ON THE INTERNET BEING PERFECTLY HAPPY WITH A TEASING FRIENDSHIP! EVIL INTERNET/PASSIONS HOARDER OF WOMEN! DOWN, I SAY! THE MARRIAGE IS OFF!! OFF I TELL YOU!!


Okay..you know my thoughts on the rumors, so I just had to do this adorable Jennlike display so that all others could witness my great sarcasm and on the subject. Anyways...now that the important part of my reply is over with..on to your poem...AHEM~~~

lol..seriously. You KNOW I love this, but then again I love all of your work. Sleep Around Phone? Hmm..I'm not sure. I think we all have one of those. This made me smile and blush. Loved it, Jeffey!


I will not bend to the cowardice of a silent judgement.

Jenn,
     What! The wedding is off?! (sticks lower lip out and pouts) But I've already picked out the china! Well, I'm not telling the guests, I'll just marry some other naive unsuspecting Passions woman! (heh heh)

mycafe, WhiteRose, GhostWriter6, sodpossom,
     Thanks for reading and I'm glad you enjoyed!

Faterider,
     no prob! I could easily see why you thought we had a "thang" goin' on! (lol)

Gale,
     What? you want to touch me? (heh heh) And I'll have you know, my dear dittydogg, that the "eyes don't lie" line refers to the fact that I couldn't hide my "fascination" with you if you were to look in my eyes! Speaking of which, what is this about me being a chickenbutt? AHEM! Obviously, we need to revisit the subject about just why I haven't come down there and seduced you and your phone! And what is this about you switching phones? Let's see... you start out with a white virginal phone and then you get a black... umm, are you trying to tell me something here? (wink wink nudge nudge) Yes people, the number is 1-900-MOONBEE.

Ok, enough goofiness (lol) I'm glad you like my little tribute to our latenight phone conversations. Now as for showing me up...well, let's see what you got! (heh heh) Remember, I did offer this poem up as a duet.
