Benny and Regrets

Benny and Regrets

A Poem by barleygirl
"

inspired by Jacob & Coyote John . . .

"


If I could turn regrets into an autumn day
I would un-say the times I said “go away”
I’d be watching as Benny pulls in my driveway
straddling his Harley as our smiles ricochet.

Leathers stretched taut over muscular thighs
shirtless tanned skin meant to tantalize
I try not to devour Benny with my eyes
hugging his slim hips between my thighs.

His machine growls down my country lane
wind is whipping my long untied mane
the scent of his hair is like opium in my vein
wishful conjecture might drive me insane.

Rumbling vibrations tingle every nerve
my legs squeeze tight rounding every curve
when Benny leans back I give up my reserve
my fancy is on fire like a drooling perv.

At the top of the ridge we reach our spot
he arranges all the picnic fixin’s he brought
his leathers so taut in a graceful squat
I hear myself whistle like a steamy teapot.

Uncontrollably I tackle him on the quilt
I’d almost forgotten how very well built
my hips take over as they rock and tilt
craving Benny’s hardness to the hilt.

Was Benny a real person? Very funny and clever poem Margie- love that title! Great wordplay. Lovely form, flow, cadence, rhyme as always. So Naughty-ha! Great imagery of a past very steamy interlude with a leather-clad biker. ‘Oh but he’s weird and he’s wonderful’- I’ll say! Started my day with a smile!

Oh God Margie, I would want Benny for me! He sounds just too good to be true. The poem has a taut, underlying sexual tension in it, well released in the concluding verse. You did an amazing job of taking your reader back to some such raving times of youth. Of course, the great pace and rhyming just enhance the pleasure of this ride. Enjoyed enjoyed! And no I'd not regret. I had it good till I had it. (HUGS)⚘

Dear Heaven and fluffy clouds - the anticipation of your 'event' and my hysterics at this end would make a brilliant farce! My eyes are turning green! Margie you make life so alive and fun and hopeful and brilliant and exciting and... and - what a great post. PS, I'm going to look for a Harley Man next time i go to the market.. wonder which aisle!

You're welcome, Margie. Always. i
MY GOODNESS - where did that come from? I didn't realize how sexually you manage to express yourself! I've never even ridden on a motorcycle, but I've been told how easily one can be aroused by one. Hmmmmm I assume you have ridden both the motorcycle and . . . . .

Take care - Dave

Okay, much welcome.
Somehow, I found that girls never caught on
When I tried to woo them on the back of my Norton.
So I then bought a two seater vintage sports car
But that was a failure ,insofar.
As the stick shift always impeded our ardour
And of course, the seats were that much harder.
So, thanks a lot Margie, your poem was long
Overdue to show me where I went wrong.
Not that it matters a jot these days.
Cos I'm now in the need of a wife chauffered phase.
.......Loved it..... **Hugs**

I love this poem cause I use to have a boyfriend with a bike and there is nothing sexier. Your poem really made me miss those free, passionate days of flying off on the bike knowing where it would ultimately lead. Great poem

Makes me want to go out and buy me some leather chaps and twerk around town in 'em - hoping to swoonify the female population of my hometown BG.
Such humour - like a sugar lump sweetens the bitter pill of regret.
Thoroughly enjoyable writing my friend.

I would rather live with mistakes and rejections then live with regrets.
On another note I rather enjoyed your words of giving in to the moment and taking the ride.
