Mag 237




she cannot disguise 
nor obscure with lace
the passion in her eyes

wanting him her fatal flaw

from beneath the mask
an acquiescing glance
‘anything .. anything you ask’

  8. "anything you ask’
    surrender veiled in a web of lace."

    Deep. Balanced surrender and desperation...

  10. Wanting him is a fatal flaw, there's a hint of danger in the relationship ~ Good one Helen ~

  11. I should have run !! :) I do find truth in this, probably too bad. But isn't that the way we are made? Nice reading, Helen. In sensation, it is almost a passion novel in two verses.

    1. I sense a quickie about to happen. Enjoy is my advice to all except my kids. (Do you remember the free love age? Somehow I missed all that. Guess I was married first time back then.)
      Thank you for the good vibes on Mrs. J. She is recovering nicely. Just nasty low blow because she didn't need a transplant before it broke.

  12. Just because this poem was so good is no excuse to go into premature retirement! Yes, I have been out searching for magpies but none flew from your place. :-(

  13. I never considered wearing face-lace. It looks good, but it sounds like she needs some more serious armor!
