paint the night 



her glossy tip
of magenta lust

the art of love 
to paint the

  9. Excellent poem! Sauve, debonair and infatuatingly romantic! Truly I didn't know there were "men in waiting". The Art of Love...yes Love is an art form. Hope the eager yet sophisticated lovers do not have to wait too long to paint the night!
