The Affair

Ponderings from Beaufort St - 8th May 2013

I confess to an affair.
My regular partner is reliable and strong
Though at times he is acidic in tone
But she, she was alluring.

I didn't mean to betray but
I’d noticed her before
Half hidden, shy demure
Her eyes dark, smoky, inky deep

Her skin, porcelain white
Her figure round and firm
A figure inviting to be held
And cupped in loving tenderness

Her sweet perfume
Heady with sensual allure
Though I tried to remain faithful
I’d thought of her to long

That fateful day
We met
I gazed into her smoky eyes
And raised her to my lips

Dam, that’s good coffee!
I have my regular coffee haunt but walking to work I noticed a new coffee place and immediately felt the 'temptation' to try their coffee and miss my usual haunt.  Hence the poem.


  1. Ha,ha! I loved it! I really enjoy your blog! You are an exceptional poet, and for this reason I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award! Please stop by my blog for all the details.

  2. Wow, thank you Vashti, I really appreciate that. Will definitely head over to your blog. Thanks again and have a wonderful day

  3. I love the sensual imagery you put in the post. And the twist at the end made me laugh. I understand the coffeehouse temptation. My girlfriend would probably be offended if she found out I've been frequenting Starbucks instead of our usual Barny's. Awesome Job

  4. Thanks Peter, :) Trust things are going well for you. David
