Sunday Scribblings "Crush"

My Three Hundredth Post
Rused Crush
Calculated conniving
Buxom thirteen
Choreographed a seat upon his knee
on the ride home from church
Blinded by my seduction
Sassy, savvy, emotionally starved
Clandestine, seemed to be my game
When it came to my crush
Sneaking out into the dark of night
Hiked me into his arms
Carrying me across puddles
Stealing kisses
While delivering
The morning paper
Scoundrel I was,
Fooling them
Rained soaked hair
Washed in the basement sink
Diverting my escape
Adrenaline pumping
Camouflaging my
Sack laden eyes
Normal semblance
Of eggs and chatter
Cosmetics and made bed
All a ruse
For a kiss
From a handsome
Eighteen year old

This is a sweet and sassy poem. It brings to mind the kisses from a boy in the matinee movie. My first kiss, and the brat used his tongue and I didn't know that to even exist until that moment. Sure never saw that in any movies way back then. Tee hee. Thanks for stiring up that memory mz giggles.

Thanks for the comment on my "gravity" post. Your name caught my eye and I thought you might like to go back at look at "my studio" post and look at the sign above my drawing table. You'll see why I've sent you there :) Keep up the good work. And oh, being a metaphysical sort of gal, have you seen "The Secret?"
It's a must see...all about the laws of attraction.
