Little Blue Peep

Little Blue Peep

A Poem by AJNJ
"

That blue dress...

"
I just love the way you use
that pert, pretty dress as a bait
that little blue number you
sometimes wear for our dates
Pulled from an old closet for me
its seems so new and blemish-free
Tailored to fit and snugly trace
the sensuous ins and outs of you
Each perky underwired inch
my contrite ground of waterloo
A decoleté plunging so steeply
helps me often pry so deeply
into your heart where you conceal
as much as you tend to reveal
yet something softly draws my eye
leaving me cynical and wry
faint as the pearly moon above
dried mildew of another’s love
those telltale spots of bygone lust
that reason why i just wont trust
for on this table meant for two
sup many ghosts, not just a few

Wow, man. Such an intriguing write. I bet that dress fits so fine! Yet somehow, when you manage to draw your eyes away from those curves, all is not as it seems. Some skeletons in that closet where the dress came from, by the sound of it. Tread with caution. Great flow and rhyme, and it's so very original. Pretty awesome.

Thank you so much for the great review. Appreciated!
Stained blue dresses can be heartbreaking and unsettling.
It helps, I suppose, if you have, at least, contributed to those tell-tale stains.
Obviously, however, this is not a woman with whom you can build a stable life.
More, one who might appreciate a well-placed cigar.
Intriguing poem!

The first part of the poem sounds like the typical lover's infatuation. All is perfect about the beloved. In the last several lines, however, we see that all is not well. The last two lines tell the tale. Loved the imagery.

Pardon me Sir, I am too unknown of the affairs of the world especially when tis 'bout 90s or before. But this eloquent piece reminded me of my first-read novel. This is the second time am stunned by the elaboration of a blue dress. Well I understand that ensembles don't carry the reasons of sins, since! the minds are all that play and get allured.
Yes P that's a good line, hooked but not booked! Says that if I love I don't have to be shackled. Coffee man you are to cheap wine addicts😅

Thanks you for the great review Ms. Sonnie! Appreciated much!
Delightful...the flow of this one was superb! Well, if she wears the dress for you, those ghosts are no more and can be swept away by the new passion. Just read your note though.....ah, that blue dress of the 90's....Monica kept it for a reason, didn't she? Absolutely great, Peston. Lydi**

An excellent poem sir, thoroughly enjoyed .. dunno whether you know it but monica is cockney rhyming slang for write ya name or sign your signature … not only is it a small world but it seems great minds think alike.... this is not the first time we have written along similar lines.... N :)

the dress reveals as much as she wants to of skin...
but the dress her heart wears reveals not a thing.
And the speaker wants to much to know what's inside...his trust has been broken so many
times, provocative dress just doesn't fool him anymore.
