Hold Out For Tonight

Unexpected surprises

By SharikaPublished 4 months ago 1 min read

Captivated by your smell

While being seduced with your eyes

Aroused by the idea

Of our two bodies entwined

“A love like no other”

He whispered softly in my neck

One arm wrapped around my waist

And now we are chest to chest

He softly glides His fingers

Through my tangled hair

I part my lips for a kiss

And he whispers

“baby, no, not here”

I open up my eyes to see

his adorable flushed cheeks

Following his gaze

I can see his mom staring at me

Equally as surprised

Now I’m turning red

She gives a soft chuckle

And says don’t let the fun end

She comes over to hug me

Her aura is so warm

This is now your home too,

she says and kisses are the norm

She gives her son a gentle nudge

As she walks away

As you were she says

Then snaps her fingers and wink my way

From the kitchen a deep voice says,

“Jenny let the young kids play”

His dad emerges from the room

And all my fears wash away

His eyes are soft and caring

His face has laugh lines

Don’t let my wife scare you he says,

She loves her gypsy side

He wraps his son in a hug

And then he takes my hand

Pleased to meet the women

Who’s turned my son into a man

We laugh so hard together

It almost makes me cry

Time to celebrate my new daughter in law

Hunny, grab the wine

As the night tapers on

it’s filled with good times

I’m overjoyed with happiness

At this love that is all mine!

About the Creator


I love writing, creating something out of nothing, the world is a canvas. Musically anything goes. I was the girl in high school in the corner with ear buds and notepad. Now I’m the women who dances to her own drum barefoot on shore.
