Hand over my mouth,
like a tale of “speak no evil”.
I should suspend my thoughts
put my lusts on hold,
except… I don’t.

    To go along with the other post I just replied to about going up to someone who catches your eye, all I’m gonna say is… “How you doin?!” ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Short and sweet, I really like it! Maybe its just the cynic in me but I have to wonder if you would have so many comments already had you not included that photo of yourself (not that I’m complaining)!

      I recommend pairing it to Whitman’s poem “One hour to madness and Joy.” I did a symposium on the topic a couple of years ago. Hint: “I still have the kiss of Whitman on my lips” Wilde ~ after a brief meeting with the poet.

    The poem with the picture work perfectly together. I was reading the comments…and I believe the picture helps intensify the words and the words add more depth to the picture. Making it more then just a “sexy image.” Beautiful Work, Chatty! Beautiful.

    Short – and ever so slightly bittersweet!

    With such feelings guilt doth lie and our other sins do then frolick,
    Oh what evils as do arise when our thought becomes shambolic
