    (quick note: If you have a significant other...your not just you, you're 'theirs'. That married man or boyfriend or lover isn't just a man, he's HER man. That man, the mind, spirit AND body belongs to HER, his woman. When i say that body that belongs to her, that means her man, that body that is hers - - - the stanzas in quotes is to the body that belongs to her. *smile*)

    "I gotta stop thinking about you
    about the body that belongs to her
    i gotta quit dreaming about they way you make her lips feel
    on my chest, my stomach, on mine
    Your voice is soft and warm
    shivers when i lay my head on your chest
    yet it's deep and quilty
    as if wanting to snatch back the words that are hers
    not mine"

    i hate to be the other woman
    (what goes around comes around right?)
    You think if i just borrow him and put him back where she left him
    i won't be taking him, just simply borrowing
    that counts right?
    (excuses, excuses)
    Me and her body spend hours in whatever weekend hideout we can find
    her thighs tangled with mine
    over the floor
    couch
    kichen
    bed...
    by the heart that is hers i'm loved, cared for, kept
    the mind that is hers avoids, denies, hides
    from me - Melody
    i mean - it's compleatly understandable
    her body being HERS and all
    but sometimes i need that 6'3" work
    of skin-bone-love-muscle
    riding my thighs all night
    while her body makes love to me

    "You told me you loved me one day
    you said you wanted my body to be yours
    but it can't be
    reason being
    is you know my body isn't mine either to begin with"

    Yeap
    All the while i say that body isn't his
    mine doesn't belong to me either
    The body of the man that DOES belong to me
    believes me
    when i tell him my tittie outfit is for a night of partying with my girls
    (Lies get you into deeper lies)
    I know i know
    but i can't tell him it's for a private show
    for the body that belongs to her
    What we gotta do is
    keep things low
    try not to glow
    when the other body comes around
    When our boils rise and juices flow
    we can't even glance for a secret hello
    just keep heads and eyes to the flo
    if things get out of control
    maybe we'll get to sneak out to make out
    in the back of my Ford like the 50's drive in whores
    and let the back of my thighs slap against his strength
    I told my man i was only going to the store
    and i can't be gone an hour more
    but all reasoning stops with his muscles work harder
    and my love squeezes tighter
    and his hurts me deeper and deeper
    ignore all cells and beepers
    his body is mine and mine is his
    only until we climax
    then we hafto go back
    drive with all windows down to dry the air
    find lost socks, straighten my hair
    both asking silent questions that should remain as such
    things are best now
    full of secrets
    as Melody and the body that belongs to her

    Melody...
    :bowdown: love the metaphor
    or the her/his body lines
    you bring a perspective
    that many are often afraid
    to speak of or have difficulty
    hearing for their own reasons...
    but there is always another
    side to the story...
    the story
    of unbridled passion that
    must not be spoken of...
    the passion that some
    are afraid of...it's so powerful/
    the kind that makes you ignore
    the beepers and cell phones...

    The kind of passion you speak of in your flow...
    Taboo as it may be...it has a certain attraction
    and energy when written about.

    Great writing!
