    ....from the hope chest

    rustled
    ruffled slips
    tussled
    cotton panties

    tossed

    (forever)

    by the light
    of many a feverish
    moon


    nubile-to
    -suckled
    breasts
    gently/firmly
    pressed
    bare/hairy
    chests

    beating
    inside
    love
    nests

    nestled

    together
    holding
    tightly
    to
    profane
    lips
    speaking
    profundities
    teaching/learning
    life/lessons

    subtleties

    laying
    ground
    rules
    (that change)
    for future
    un/willing fools
    falling
    prey
    attracted
    to the
    game

    passion
    is pain
    pain
    is pleasure

    (thankful?)

    (ohh yes!!!…)

    (how much?)

    (can’t measure)

    & won't
    nothing
    ever

    be the same

    blessed
    cherry
    remembers
    every name

    "cotton panties...

    tossed...forever"


    from sweet young womanhood into the fullness of the knowledge of all that's good... and a dash of evil.

    Beautiful ... and definitely something important to remember.
