back in the day

back in the day

A Poem by Lydia

artwork by alberto vargas



stuck in a time warp
that's what some would say
i  liked things a little better
WAY back in the day!
when hips and bust were unseen
a bare midriff was considered bold
nooks and crannies remained hidden
yea, yea, i know i'm getting old!
but domestic adventures
notwithstanding you see
through my rocky life experience
i’ve learned a thing or three!
somewhere between the lines
sensuality can mill about
no need for blatant erotica
seduction need not shout!
frilly silky unmentionables
are truly meant for the boudoir
for the eyes of your lover
your romeo, your czar!
hinting at a fantasy is more elegant
like a sexy lace negligee
listen to the advice i give
la fin s'il vous plaît!

most people do look better with clothes on...and the rest simply intimated...
the subtle journey there is what really had us going in our youth...
now it's a free-for-all....
i can relate to this...
i enjoy that "
between the lines" sensuality.

No time warp here Lydia, just so very true that what lies beneath is far more fascinating for sure.

I appreciate your review, Beccy. Thanks. Lydi**
The old days, were the better days. When love was like opening a Christmas present. A honored moment. I agree with your words and thoughts dear Lydia. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

Yes, like opening a present! Thank you so much, John. Lydi**
Amen, sista friend, sing it loud & proud! I hate watching popular performers grinding their crotches down into a close-up camera shot! I love watching the old farts perform becuz they started before music industry insisted on a flashy come-on (or so it's said). Anyhow, your rhyme & rhythm are perfectly crafted to deliver this little chunk of sass with attitude. I love your playful chastising tone & the details you use to really hammer your point home (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Glad you liked my little ditty, Margie. I used to rhyme a lot more than I do now. Still, it is fun.. read more
What did you say at the end... Haha, this is on-point...
Nakedness is enticing, yes...
But a shape against soft-cloth, or the blush-lines on a cheek...
A gentle touch of arm, a stray hair fallen out of place...
A deep breath...
Rise and fall...

Passion is...
An art...
Not a blunt object

a well crafted word does more to me than a well crafted body... but I'm strange! I fall for minds much more than matter:) I am around beautiful people all of the time and at the first sense of superficial shallowness and "I'm pretty" entitlement I become repulsed :( Grab my attention in intellect and I'm putty in your hands:) by the way I have a small collection of 1940's pinup girls I buy them to sell in my store, but they don't always make it into the store.... Like these lines Lydia

"no need for blatant erotica

You said it, Lydi! Leave a little to the imagination - the intensity alone will drive you insane!

Oh Lydi**. Nowadays it's like being given a gift before the giver has bothered to wrap it up. The excitement definitely comes in the unwrapping. I love this sensual write with all its frilies, lace and ribbons. Thank you for a nostalgia trip :)

As strange as it might sound
as strange as you might think
if I could have a minute to speak
I would just say this with tongue in cheek
I'm with you all the way on this Lydi**
down with those unmentionables

Such a poetic review! :) Thanks so much, Neville. Lydi**
"... nooks and crannies remained hidden ...". LOL. Somewhere the sexual revolution got clouded in the need to "show it all". A most excellent write (love to see you rhyme !) ~Jim

As summer shows her sensuality in fragile shades
of innermost secrets covered in moonlight and dreams...
there is a sensibility of sharing all that lies beneath ...
French tones of Brahms lullabies will suffice when
lovers behold their fantasies. truly, Pat
