bathsheba, you are
so perfectly regal
& you bathe yourself
in the daylight
so anyone could see

bathsheba, you tease
you temptress
you will ruin
a perfectly good man
with your sighs

one touch to the arm
& bathsheba, you know
you've gotten your way

you always get your way

your body
clothed in
water & sun

you can ruin a man
with a simple sigh


Author's Note: funny to me that all my recent poems are falling into the "Infatuation" subject matter category. just funny.

it's amazing how this is written ::: like a tribute ::: then like a sigh ::: I love your way with imagery ::: stay infatuated! ::: poetry likes you very much. óJiLL :)
