Poetry: First Time I Saw She: Rata

I was intoxicated in her atmosphere
Dreams can only describe her mesmeric poise and sensuous aura
Her queenly demeanor was not act, but rightfully her own
I was set adrift on a journey bliss of sable queens and Khoi San princesses
I wish that I could see her walk
for I knew that it would match her eyes that inebriated my heart and seduced my soul
Her curvaceous and ample presence reminded me of my youthful dreams
And nocturnal rendezvous

Haa haa! :)
SEJ,you know, the night time is the right time to be with the one you love and sometimes that "one" is you. In other words, I was reminiscing on my adolescent "wet dreams." Those little messy moments. :)

Beautifully written. Whoever you wrote it for is a lucky lady!

Happy Holidays!

Stephen A. Bess said...

I'm glad that you like it. You think that she's lucky? Thanks! That means that you think that I am a worthy catch. I humbly accept your compliment. :)

Happy Holidays!

I agree. I am a dreamer. I've been told that since grade school when teachers were writing comments on my report card, "Stephen tends to day-dream." Thank God, I'm still dreaming.

Stephen A. Bess said...

Yes, you are correct. "nocturnal rendezvous" are referring to wet dreams. Those were the good ol' days. Thanks!

Thanks for the the three snaps. :)

I'm sorry if I'm getting too mushy for you, but a man has to express his softer side at times.

Unconquerable Soul-
It seems so real in the beginning doesn't it.

I looked and I saw. You da man!

Stephen A. Bess said...

I hope that you are having a great day! Thank you for your comment.

Yes, this world has so sadness in it. I just keep praying and try to maintain my faith. I'm glad that I could make you feel what I was trying to convey.

Yes, you have such a nice holiday wish that I wanted to say my wish. Thank you for stopping by as well.

Ooooh Weeee!

This poem was SEXY!

I loved it.
My favorite line is
"I was intoxicated in her atmosphere"

Intense imagery all over this poem.
Do you mind if I save this?

Stephen A. Bess said...

Not at all. I'm glad that you liked it! I wrote this poem years ago and revised it a bit.
