Womanly Gifts It's not just the parting of my thighs that gets your rise Nor the fullness of my breast or the strength of my intellect It is the wideness of my eyes, the naiveness of my being That has you believing I am that "Queen" you have been seeking The shaking of my hips, the tilting of my head, the way my dimples display when smiling It's the subtleness and sweetness dripping sweeter than cane sugar The scent of my womanly gifts Bathed in warm vanilla with a hint of cherries Beauty both ways Inner and Outer Rare bird I am The rich smoothness of my spoken words The way my body seductively reacts to yours Erotically blending us two A woman of many mysteries shown deep within reflective caramel colored eyes
