Smitten

Smitten

A Poem by Colleen C Dunphy
"

The muse is very busy.

"

Smitten.

Fiery red hair. Porcelain skin. Freckles and a crooked smile.

Her grey-green eyes bright with mischief.

Always looking and then looking away.

Unsure of what she's thinking.

Only knowing its hard to contain the grin as the giddy feeling inside bubbles to the surface.

Unable to concentrate.

Can't stop thinking about her.

Conversations in my head.

Just wanting to see that smile again.

Just wanting to see that smile again.

Trying to over come my shyness.

Rusty from years of unuse.

How do you woo a lady if you are unsure if she wants to be wooed?

Timing is everything.

A smile speaks 1000 words.

Balance between contact and space.

Hands itch to touch her.

Slow fingers over soft velvety skin.

I'm smitten.

What a wonderful poem. This made me sigh as I read the words. I have never been wooed. Yes I have done the enchanting, it is who I am, the one who does the saving and yet I still hold the hope of one day meeting someone that sweeps me off my feet as I do everyday for her. I could have written this poem myself for I have asked myself the same questions.

"Can't stop thinking about her." Sigh... "A smile speaks 1000 words."

'Slow fingers over soft velvet skin' - a delightful vision of gentle exploration... It was nice that the new WC jumble made me find this poem of passion. *smiles*

I could certainly feel the intensity and nervousness as I read it... a really lovely job my friend.

"Rusty from years of unuse"

such a sweet and humble write!! there is insecurity in the uncertainty. but there is a cuteness about it, unsurety. we've all felt this way. the funny thing ... the muse probably feels just the same way. have her write it down - that would be a great juxtaposition! (oh, wait, "shyness") great job lee!

I'm Smitten too! There is a real innocent sexiness in this piece...honestly, I can see a woman, sitting still to be painted...I don't know why that image hit me but it did...I enjoyed reading this!

Rock on~
