Impressions

“It’s pretty simple, pretty obvious: that people’s first impressions of people are really a big mistake.”  –  Vincent D’Onofrio

“Harold, like the rest of us, had many impressions which saved him the trouble of distinct ideas.”   –  George Eliot

Impressions

Not impressed

By the cover

Your stories

Words

Actions

That make

You

Those I shall

Read

Reverently

Quietly first

In Braille

Then out loud

No stone unturned

Moving on to trace

The outline

Mouthing the

Words

Absorbing the senses

Neural imprinting

I shall

Know you by

Heart

***

Bisous,

Léa

Falling

“The only way to get rid of temptation, is to yield to it.”  – Oscar Wilde

“The trouble with resisting temptation is it may never come your way again.”  – Korman’s Law

“Eroticism is like a dance: one always leads the other.”  – Milan Kundera

Falling

I am

Falling

Falling

Falling

Spinning

Turning

Somersaulting

Out of

Control

And

I’m

Afraid

And it

Excites me

Bisous,

Léa

Red’s own story

“And whenever I’m in a situation where I’m wearing the same as 600 other people and doing the same thing as 600 other people, looking back, I always found ways to make myself different, whether it be having a red lining inside of my jacket, having red shoes, it hasn’t changed.”
– Jeremy Irons

“When in doubt wear RED.”
– Bill Blass

Red’s Own Story

 

She is the thick

Slick enamel

That covers my nails

A pointer when tracing

Concentric circles

On bare flesh

She is the sports car

Darting along the highway

Hugging the curves

Turning an eye

She is the ripe

Succulent strawberry

Her flesh firm

Yet yielding

Tantalizing dipped in dark chocolate

Suits her best

She is the

American beauty

Long stemmed, heady fragrance

Her tight buds unfurl

Exposing her inner delicacy

We forget the thorns

She is the creamy dark war paint

On my lips

A signature

When and where

I choose to leave my mark

She is fire

On the move

Churning inside

Rising up

Beckoning me on

She is

Passion

Bisous,

Léa

… in season

“I generally avoid temptation unless I can’t resist it.”
– Mae West

Too much of a good thing is wonderful.
Mae West

… in season

Having fallen

From the tree

The plum bursts

With ripeness

My lips quiver

Hovered low

Anxious to devour

Juices

Flow freely

Skin sticky sweet

Delights of the season

My tongue

Rejoices

Bisous,

Léa
