Red Wine

Bottled and aged with sophistication,
I’m infatuated.
Her look. Her charm.
More so, my virginity unrelated.

She pours into my glass,
smooth as satin only her and I know.
Her elegance intoxicating.
Touching my lips, I ask for more.

Sharing my thoughts with her,
I breathe in every bittersweet reply.
Glass after glass,
eventually calling it a night.

I went to bed alone,
laying there in silhouetted light.
I fell in love with a woman
who I met in a glass of red wine.

    This poem was wonderful. Hearing it in your voice added to the enjoyment. Have you written a poetry book yet?

      Thank you very much for the kind words. I have written 2 poetry books, one for kids and another to prove to myself I could do it. Have you written a poetry book Ms. Susan?

      My sincerest gratitude 😊 My voice was ready but still a little shaky when it comes to something like this.

        Little nervousness is natural! But it turned out very good, you have nothing to be worried about.
