Candy apple red
The color of his car
How softly its engine purrs

Candy apple red
The color of her lipstick
How sweet her seductive kiss

Addictive ... this color's allure
Powerful ... its attraction
Exhilarating ... his reaction

A deep red vibrant hue
That fires his imagination
Heightening his anticipation

Candy Apple Red
A stimulus of ... procreation?

Beautifully Said!
Beautifully Felt!

Naughty but nice. I like the analogy of Candy Apple Red. Sweet and seductive. The concept of a woman wearing red lipstick is in fact rather Freudian. I won’t mention what it is meant to allure to. As I may get censored by the system. But it is provocative and sensual…

Great playful write. Thanks…

A stimulus of ... procreation? It could very well be Gwen. Men have been known to want to...well, just want to, for reasons less than a color of lipstick, or eyeshadow, or nail color. I love this, because it is so true. Thnx for sharing Gwen. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, maybe too stubborn for my own good, joy to the world, peace on erth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS))))))))), your very sad and very terrified little sister, Barbie

Never cared for red lipstick, or any lipstick for that matter. Much prefer the natural colour. More delicious for kissing too!
