(100 Word Challenge)

100_word_challenge_participant_copy

It’s been a few weeks since I participated in the 100 Word Challenge… This week’s entry is actually a re-vamped piece from 2006. It originally had 86 words, and I’ve beefed it up a bit to be eligible. First is the "100 Words" version followed by the original "86".

So can you do it? Can you finally answer that age-old riddle…
Is less really more? (And we’re not talking about blue eyeshadow here, people.)

(Want in 100 Words)

The honey drips softly, sweetly,

thick and heavy from your lips.

I taste your breath but briefly,

and suckle at the delicacy you boldly deign to offer.

 

All that is elegance and beauty, your hands quick to roam…

Smug in their discovery:

content with these small indulgences of their own.

You smile as you taste my shame.

 

I labor against your hold.

I bloom, blush, unfurl…

Speaking softly to your hips, I grow bold.

You press closer and smile your knowledge.

 

I quietly sob, rage, then soften.

I taste of you and you of me-

The honey all but forgotten.

(Desire in 86)

The honey drips sweetly,

Thick and heavy from your lips.

I taste your breath but briefly

And suckle at the delicacy you offer.

 

Your hands roam with elegance and beauty

In search of an indulgence of their own.

Smug in your discovery,

You smile and taste my shame.

 

I labor against your unspoken hold.

I bloom, blush, unfurl…

Speaking to your hips, I grow bold.

You press closer

 

I sob, rage, then soften.

I taste of you and you of me-

The honey all but forgotten.
