Sweet Ole' Sultry Blues


Poem Commentary

A song from one of my favorite musicians brought this piece to life...it is intended to be read while listening to the song...I couldn't figure out how to add the video to my profile...so if you're up for it, here's the link... :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HATWE6Ptio

Sweet Ole' Sultry Blues


Rhythm lulls motion to gentle, calm, lazy day sway…

heat wave gives credence to thoughts of the sweltering day.


Barefoot dance, hardwood floor, dusks sultry beauty so pure…

soft cotton & silk cling to define each muscle & curves so demure.


Fingertips softly trace sin's well known routes of temptation…

lingering on dew kissed skin, shivering from sensation.


Hips sway; close, tight & steady in aching sensuality…

erratic pulses, beads of sweat, unbearably sweet intensity.


Startled sighs fall on ear, sending chills straight to the bone…

steady burn rising, seductive, overpowering and slow.


 Heavier beat entangles hearts in a barely held back dance…

coaxing tension, heavy lids, gasping breaths, demanding hands.


Silk bunches and slinks slowly higher in white knuckled fist…

blazing trails of white heat with tender flesh seeking grip.


Passionate kisses, hot licks of flame reaching to touch two souls…

desire desperately pulls against rhythm’s maddening control.


Music in motion, deep soul emotion, lifting toward ecstasy’s heights…

strength commands, softness remands, yielding to lovers rights.


Souls intertwined, one heart of mind; an undivided union of two…

a crash course collision between you & I… and the sweet ole’ sultry blues.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
