“Brevity is the soul of lingerie.” Dorothy Parker

Chemise Me

She wrote with her eyes
and painted with her movements,
short strokes, long strokes,
she sang in low soft silk sighs, 
her wisp of pink sent invitations
like tremors of an earthquake, and
held my breath as bated as she
coloured my world chemise.

  3. Only a shirt knows the mystery of the wind in souls, an undeciphered breeze between him and her, the scent of sin that flows like a story and burns metaphorically the pleasures of those unspoken words… 😉

  5. Hey great photo!👍🏻 Less serious than the other, which I liked too😀. Funny thing as I shopped for my wedding night, I purchased a filmy pink short concoction and found out later that it was my husband’s least favorite color. It was writing in the wall…😂

  6. Your word choices are fantastic here – the colours, the textures, all coming together in that chemise.

  7. I got out of your poem and the prompt. Who could have imagined that Chemise is a paint color! (As a garment, a chemise is a lovely thing to wear.)
