She Has Curves~




She has curves~
that must be said
first, middle
and last...

She has curves~
and a penchant
for the dramatic.

She has curves~
the body of a seraphim,
the powers to match.

Her touch
heals the deepest wound

Her voice
calms the maelstrom

She has curves~
a roadmap to desire,
a city of divine sin
rising from the desert,
a monument to time
spent rolling through
satin,
lace,
and the too-small hours

She has curves~
handle them with care
or she'll take you deep
into a turn you'll regret
She has curves~
roads winding onward
blistering to the touch,
and I'm melting--
melting
drifting
floating
around
and again...
To walk her promised land
for ten thousand nights,
I have a lovelorn lust.

The sweet lady she,
sings to me the words...

She holds my key

She
has curves~
and she is not afraid
to use them.

Jessica Lee, I thank you foremost of all for your reading of your poem "I have Curves" to me that inspired me to write this poem, many years later. 

In debt to you for this one, I most certainly am.   And I hope you write more poems again one day.

Stella huh ??

I live pretty close to a sin city myself. I try to avoid it most of the time.

I think I could get into Hendrx-inspired astral phenomena names. But when speaking of heavenly bodies with curves, I guess the feminine Stellacious is appropriate. Myself, I've always liked curves.

Princess Pointful said...

Funny how one word (curves) says so much about a person.
A woman who knows she has them is infinitely more powerful than one who doesn't.
Hoppy Easter, Eric!

"and the powers to match"

Yeah, you got it goin' on! Clink! My friend......

Ant said...

Yay, she's back and she's curvy!

Absent-mindedly flitting about a regular shop today, I saw a picture of a bunch of similarly curvy surfer-type ladies today that inspired immediate lust. Put a proper spring back into my step I tells ya....

Listening to some good old barhound blues right now, I found myself sing-songing this poem....Lol, it really would make a great blues song!
Lol at the new names for M82. I have a girlfriend who think Stella (as in stellar) is the sexiest name ever... which kinda explains my little proposal ;) Happy Easter & Keep throwing your beautiful curve words at us!

gingatao said...

Cool curvey manifestation poem, rolls with her rhythm,

Cléa said...

Your words let the mind's eye follow her curves. I particularly like your warning, "handle them with care
or she'll take you deep
into a turn you'll regret".

As another guitar player, I sure saw some curves here.

WILSONART said...

She's got curves,,,
and nerves,,,
of steel.

She's got charm,,,
to disarm,,,
doesn't feel.

She's got power,,,
to devour,,,
all that's real.

She's got time,,,
to do your mind,,,
and that she'll steal.

And she's got curves.

Sandy

Oh yeah! You know it.


Charles

Yeah, but it's a romantic city, too. I'd have a hard time avoiding it, myself. I'd love to wander the streets there and just absorb the thrum of life all around me.


X Dell

I love curves, even if they aren't always of the physical variety.

And Hendrix rocks. I always think of stars in many senses whenever I hear the term, whether or not it's applied to the actual thing or to regular beings who lucked out or had the talent to be called one.

eric1313 said...

Princess

Yes it is funny how true that word can be. I loved all the levels that it worked on, but I wish I could have done more with the idea than what I did. But still, it's a nice poem.

Take care you! I hope your Easter was just as hopin' as mine was.


Singleton

Clink!

Same to you. Your poem right now is incredible. What a post!


Ant

It's good to be back. And the curvaciousness is one of the gifts of god.

I love it when I get struck with perma-grin from a sweet reverie about one who possesses such refined lines.

eric1313 said...

Skinny

I hear you there, my friend. There are definitely curves suggested in certain names. We meet people by many different names in life, some of them sharing the same name. But there are times when we meet someone new, and they redifine what we think of as a person with their name. They brake the mold and establish a new one.

Take it easy, you. Glad to read you.


Gingatao

I love it, too. The open roads have their own paeans, as does this subject. Just adding my voice to the chorus.


Clea

That's one of the manifestations of this that I really liked, too.

Certain people define this without haveing to be too curvacious themselves. Their appeal is inside, in the way that their thoughts are appreciated and liked.

I love all curves equally.

Good eye, everyone.

eric1313 said...

Ivan

Yes sir. Musicians, writers, we know the curves. Maybe not as much as we would like too, but enough to know that no two are alike.


Wilsonart

Curves are what nake a road interesting,
no matter how well traveled they are.

Curves give us a reason to wonder
what we might find around the next bend.

Curves keep us alert.

Curves bring us to unknow places
or back to were we started

Heaven, hell,
Albuquerque, Atlantis
war, peace or love
are all around whichever bend
we chose to negotiate next

Curves keep us company
as we drive their expanses
late into the hottest summer day
or the coldest winter night

distractedspunk said...

I'm with PP on how curves can empower women who are comfortable with them. I do love my curves. But I don't talk about them all the time. :-P. Just when they're being obnoxiously annoying. And not fitting in my clothes right. (You wouldn't understand this, as you're not a girl.)

Thanks for the supportive words.

Josie said...

Eric, what a great poem. I love it, love it, love it! Here's to women who have curves, and the men who write poems about them.

Ultra Toast Mosha God said...

Good prose about Vegas.

I like

benjibopper said...

she has, perhaps, celestial curves.

Blancodeviosa said...

And she knows how to use them...


oh wait, that's legs

Pythia3 said...

Wow! I am loving my curves right about now, baby!
I feel the power and respect and fear and curiosity and mystery...
Whew!
Mighty mighty Aphrodite
Ignited spark Joan of Arc
Love us want us Pocohontas
you get it...hahahaha LOL
Now - off the womb I go...(poem, that is)

Lana Gramlich said...

Watch out for those curves...They might be attached to one high maintenance b!tch. <:\
(Sorry for my absence, again...Had some back trouble for a while.)

Marissa said...

WOW. Hot and I love it.

karma lennon said...

Very nice one, Eric! Glad to see you back. :)

Crashdummie said...

Maybe she should be equiped with "warning for curves" sign? ;)

if you got it, flaunt it! Cheers my friend!

Crushed by Ingsoc said...

She most certainly has curves!

Er- are you in love by any chance?

SpongyBones said...

"Speak your desire;
I'll make it happen
tonight"


Wow love this one! Now tell me where to find her! Opps wait I have a girlfriend now. Down boy down!

Edyta said...

AH.

Thinking of Mae West again.

"Cultivate your curves - they may be dangerous but they won't be avoided."

I just cant say enough about the beauty of the womens' curves. They r divine.

eric1313 said...

Jessica!

I hope you like this one. I decided to put a comment here, too. Saying for sure, I was inspired by your awesome poem, "I have Curves". Total tribute to you on that.

eric1313 said...

Jessica: Provided you ever read this comment section.



Edyta: Mae West may yet get a poem...
