Full Version: Perversion by Richard

I can feel my age
like a nervous adolescent undoing a bra.

Do I kiss her neck,
turn off the lights,
or take off my pants?

I want to think my choice matters.

Then it's over:
a mess, an apology,
and I'm red faced.
I feel with a vague certainty
that our bodies have limitations.

I'm scared,
I know this will happen again;
actually, part of me
for an even worse ending.

I'd missed this earlier: fine choice. The ending is sublime.
Congrats, Richard! Thumbsup

Todd, thank you so much for the spotlight. This site has been a wonderful experience for me because I have gotten so many incredible ideas for the poems I have submitted, and plenty of kind words as well.
Richard, I don't know if you've noticed, but spotlighted poems have been few and far between recently. In fact, there have never been all that many selected. Your poem is outstanding, and you have been a very welcome addition to our site. Thank you.
well done richard; solid choice todd.
Great choice Todd, really well done Richard it is a pleasure reading your work and comments.
Very worthy poem, really well written & enjoyable to read out loud, I love reading poems out loud Smile
