Drawer of Memories

an old black negligee
carelessly tossed in a drawer
long forgotten
once causing a grown man
to swallow his breath
as mystery and intrigue
teased and taunted his every thought
when seductively it covered
firm young curves
offering unconditional surrender
as nights of passion
ruled their universe
until time began to temper
mellowing intense passions
smoothing with maturity's hand
dreams and realities tucked within
a drawer of memories
amid photos and theater tickets
is the old negligee
a faint scent escapes
as the drawer is opened
teasing unexpected vignettes
of unquenchable velvet nights
ruled by youth, passion and wonder
evoking smiles, tears and sweet memories

Carole this is one of the most beautiful memories poems I have had the pleasure to captures the feeling of the moment so perfectly. I think we all have our own memory drawer with both the good and bad memories tucked inside but the trick to remember is there is always room for tomorrow's memories as well.

Elegant writing, Carole, the recall is both intense and wistful and finely realised.

Ah, this is filled with so much remembered passion, Carole. I love this side of you. Though the youthful passion has waned, it is the memories and the dreams that sustain her through the ages.
Reviewed by Mark Lichterman 10/2/2010
Carole, what a sweet, lovely poem. But you know what? Though that black negligee may not cling to what used to be that now may be an inch or two or possibly lower, or in places that may have thickened, but to this older guy, the beauty of whom is now older, to this older guy is not diminished but changed in a softer, more gentle way. And those velvet nights? They are, at least for this older guy, those velvet nights can still be as thrilling as all those many years ago.
Your friend; Mark
