Candle’s Arse!

Mood lighting is enhancement, not the mood.
It beckons the shadows of seduction
to dance like titillated warriors around
the reflection flickering in your eyes.
It has allure and ambience,
draperies of intimate invitation
hanging in the background, the background only.
So I say “candle’s arse”, when you say
that’s what makes the photograph hot;
it’s you, and only you, that
has the breath to blow it out.

I am totally captivated with this poem Pat!
to dance like titillated warriors around
the reflection flickering in your eyes.

As the comment above demonstrates, this poem has a heat of its own.

it’s you, and only you, that
has the breath to blow it out.

This makes me think that you wrote it in the '70s. I know you didn't, but I don't know -- I guess it's the "mood" and the candles....
Very nice.

to be noticed, with or without flashing lights. Your eyes notice what is real!
Romantic truth !

A sensuality that spreads around the light...
And,
It beckons the shadows of seduction
to dance like titillated warriors around
the reflection flickering in your eyes.

Visualisation was titilation for me. This is sheer poetry.
