Rose Petal Trail To Her Boudoir

Rose Petal Trail To Her Boudoir

rose petal trail


He gave her two dozen deep red roses, her favorite,
The heavenly scent of passion surrounded her,
And filled the rooms with intoxicating fragrance.
Thrilled she was with his loving gift,
Then sad, knowing he had to work late,
Leaving her alone to enjoy the beautiful roses.
Rose petals she would put in her bath water.

Luxuriate and engulf herself in the fragrant water,
In self-indulgent delight to soothe her emotions.
Drowsy, thinking of him and their passions at night.
Wrapped in a robe after stepping out of rose water
In the hall she saw a rose petal trail to her boudoir,
Where he waited for her, tears flowed at the surprise,
As she felt like a goddess from the look in his eyes.

He held her close and inhaled her fragrance,
Driving him wild with passion and desire,
Yet gently he lay her down on rose petals in the bed,
And showered her with rose petals from toe to head.
Soft laughter mixed with passionate moans,
Escaped from her rose colored lips,
As his kisses, soft as butterfly wings, removed each petal.

I am the Senior Editor and SEO Editor for The Creative Exiles (TCE). I edit all posts to help members achieve an acceptable score on Google and other search engines. I am also an author on TCE and write mainly in poetry and short stories. I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.
