She waits wistfully at the window
Wondering if he will be a no-show
Ready and willing for his caress
In her lacy, gossamer thin dress
A draught plucks at her alluring beauty
Drawing her heart strings tightly
She reads a text message just received
‘Five minutes, darling,’ her breast heaves
As she waits to see the glare of headlights
Through the country lane like two penlights
She waits with bated breath, her pulses throbbing
Every fibre of her being aching
His key turned in the door
He would satisfy her amour
Cherishing their love affair
Tonight they would conceive an heir.


  1. Sally, this was really good. Loved the tension and anticipation you created. And really liked this line for some reason "A draught plucks at her alluring beauty" the ending is perfect too. Heck, it was all good! (:

  2. Oh very good - I can remember the good old days when I waited with bated breath...
