You are more rare than

a bird of paradise.

Let me leave my mark

upon your feathers

soft as eider down.

On a widespread river

amid the perfume of damp flowers

sing to me a mock sinner’s lullaby

in return I offer you pearls

and the hollow at my throat.

  2. This is very visually appealing as it is also magical and imaginative, Holly. This forms a lovely sensitive spot where if someone kisses me there (the hollow of my neck), I nearly cannot resist! Ooooh! Gives me goosebumps.

          1. Oh, I usually use sighs or moans. I am of the mind if a man doesn’t know how to “take signals,” they can find someone else to handle a lack of empathy and sensitivity. If I were younger I may start giving nudges. Hahaha. πŸ™‚
