ONCE IT WAS
THE SHADOW OF HER SMILE …
The ‘shadow’ of her smile was all that mattered to the lover yearning to see and listen to his beloved. This was not physics. This was just pure love cast in a veritable time and season.
How much attractions and what attracts have shifted. It’s no longer the shadow. The smile figures transiently.
Between 65 and now, we’ve moved from smiles, lips, eyes, neck, hips, legs (once they were better when hairy) and more recently there has been a pelvic invasion.
The butt has emerged wet in warm dance and thrust. Ancient sensual symbol, you say?
Yes. Imagine, ‘the shadow of your butt!’ What a claim!
I would like to suggest in this brief oeuvre that maybe the butt is losing the votes. Men should turn to women’s breasts if, and it’s a huge if, they desire to find her fire and virtuous emotional resource.
Breasts are the avenue, the portal to a woman’s endless emotions, but few men know this!
And you know what’s even more amazing? When this is mentioned to a woman of most races, it suddenly dawns on her that this may well be true —.
