I know Why You Love Bubble Baths (adoration)

Free Verse: This poem was created entirely from the enjoyable fun of imagination. ; )

"


I know why you love bubble baths:

it’s the joy they bring,

the sly smile they leave

curling at the corners of your mouth --

playful, inviting, seductive,

as you slip slowwwly down …


water displacing just enough

so that liquid lips can lick you,

as feet, then hips, then stomach

submerge into frothy warmth,

eliciting a contented sighhh

as lathered fingers stretch

to caress those great peaks --

lingering, just above the surface.


And, standing at doorway's edge

(I, a silent unseen voyeur),

realize I’m jealous

of the bubbles kissing you,

of their shameless effort 

to conspire with the soap,

the shampoo, and the water

to hold you …

for just a while longer.


I shouldn’t be jealous,

because in truth, we’re just the same.

I’m forever conspiring with Nature

to give me one more minute,

one more breath, one more kiss.


Oh, yes!

I know why you love bubble baths --

it’s for the same reasons

that for all these years,

I've loved You.

The imagery being expressed in this cleverly woven piece is captivating. I couldn't help but notice how well the words flowed from line to line, as if they themselves were like water. Especially with many of the words containing the sultry "s" in them... slid pleasantly off the tongue.

I thoroughly enjoyed this piece!

Bubble baths are amazing for soothing the soul.

This is one of those beautiful private moments that couples have. To be adored without her knowing he’s standing there watching her intimately with love and desire

This was fun and naughty. Loved it : ))
I'd more likely bring in the bath crayons.

I love when writing conjures up simple truths that take the imagination on a journey much longer than the piece. When we can identify with these things so readily, the author has done his/her work in the best way. I feel all slippery after this one, great work!!!

Your poetry has such a great flow to it! I loved the vivid imagery, alliteration, and the onomatopoeic elongated words.

Love the gentle sensuality that runs throughout. Second verse in particular is brilliantly insightful; but you have no need of jealousy Richard; after all, bubbles are short lived are they not; whereas love is an entirely different matter. :))

Keep conspiring.

AHHH Bubble baths!! Stop standing at the doorways edge and hop in! LOL now a bubble bath for two would be fun! LOL kidding aside, what a fun little write! A perfect description of the simple pleasures of a bubble bath. Loving the analogy of the water, soap and bubbles holding on and the desire of the "man at the dorway" wanting the same. Very enjoyable read...now I need to hop in the tub! :-)
