Solace Alone

Solace Alone












Traces of lassitude

Slow down to cruising,

Warmth of the whiskey

Ameliorates bruising.

Putting the feet up

Makes it inane,

That I'm subtly aroused

In mouthing your name.


Subtle arousal

In tracing the line

Of your thin cotton undies

With fingertip fine,

And watching the smile

Slide up to your eyes,

See the blend of your blushing

In murmured surprise.


Oh the glorious sunset

Streams in through the glass

And the shades refracted

Nicely contour your ass

And the whisky is mellow

The mood is sublime,

So the promise of evening

Improves with time.


With serpentine moves

And the grace of an snake,

You uncoil to your feet

And you make your escape.

Mouthing thin fabrications

And utter wee fibs,

You flee back to your hearth

And your husband and kids.


Solace alone Baby,

Solace alone,

With frustration and whisky

All the lonely way home.

As the penitent thoughts

Percolate through unseen,

My sad mind ponders

On what might have been.
