No Moonlight to Wear



I dreamt that I was wearing moonlight

When your hands cupped my breasts from behind

Their freckled tops leaving you swollen…

Seeking to hide…and eager to find

Auburn curls cascading to the side;

A waterfall so close to your kiss

You were buried in moist surrender –

My surrounding warmth your accomplice

And in that moment we were tethered…

By more than just the hold of our stare

Then daylight witnessed the whole scene gone;

No you…no moonlight for me to wear

Creative and sensual. Your talent shines!

Many blessings
Reviewed by Andy Turner
WOW, I find this rather romantically sublime. Yeah, I know, just because it's written by a beaut of fit babe does make it even sensuous, but oh boy you are so creative in your rather eloquent visuals.
Making love under the stars and moon is what this brings to mind and, in that tethered moment you are one with the universe.

Such a divine poem, I've now read this so often I may as-well add it to my library. Prolly a first!
More women should dress this way. xx :)

To encapsulate and condense pure eroticism and romance within the supernal glow of moonlight only to have it dashed by the rising of the sun is very creative poetry. "Auburn curls cascading to the side", and there before me stood the passionate elegance of you. Sheila, you have rendered fine art here my dear friend. I bid you days of joy and nights of love and peace to paint the sky brightly. Jon Michael

At least there was the dream to dream. The dream is sensuous and romantic, but the reality, sans moonlight, breaks the heart, Sheila. ~Hugs, Elizabeth

Reviewed by Axilea MU
I loved the title, to begin with: moonlight as skin, as glow, as silk.
This is very effective in creating the atmosphere and describing the moment and... the moment after.

Such captivating words, no moonlight to wear, such an original idea! A thought provoking work of a love that you miss... or is missed? I really like this, Sheila. One can bask in your words and feel the warmth of love. Joy L. Hale

Breathtaking writing, Sheila, this is disarmingly beautiful!
Reviewed by Barbara Terry
How many of us have been where this poem has gone? Bittersweet is the dream shattered by daylight, bittersweet is knowing that it was just a dream that could have been real. Your phrasing too is mildly erotic leaving what is happening to the imagination of the reader. A wonderful poem, albeit, bittersweet in its ending. Thank you for sharing.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and be with you always and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your den sister, Barbie

Aw! Loved your phrasing, Sheila! Loved the title too...bittersweet story told with your familiar eloquence.

Reviewed by John Flanagan
'Bittersweet' is often over- and/or misused
but for me it applies here for the palpable sense of loss
after the enchantment and sensuality of the union and
its sheer eroticism;
may you, Sheila, have moonlight to wear for all time
and may you share with us your beautiful poetry forever.

there is a dream to pen with all the lure and mystique of the moon! Perfect. ~ Morgan

Aw, Sheila, Sheila, Sheila . . .

Wherefore did thou conjure
A tale to make my blood soar
Why thou rushed in your desire
In the end thou didst lie
No moonlight, no flesh to hold
You and I stand there so cold

Very lovely Sheila, you captured this so well.
Reviewed by George Carroll
Your poetry is always full of splendor and adding the moonlight leaves the dawn to wait.

A beautifully imaged metaphor Sheilfriend - sultry and mysterious - written with your special panache. I sense something melancholy and (certainly) unrequited in the threads of this. Stay the course in all faith through seasons of depair. Wishing you health, stability, heart strength, and creative focus. Pixiedust and thumb-faeries ... richard
