Barely Pink

27 Dec

It is a color of innocence, of promise and discovery, of blooming cherry blossoms before they’re besotted with sun. Flirtatious and shy, it is how I appear to you when I shed my public layers — a blank and dewy landscape awaiting your artist’s brush.

It is a color that, when I wear it, appears suggestive because it matches my skin: cream tinged with the softest hint of pink. In a slightly darker shade, it is the color of my nipples and my unpainted lips, both designed to pucker and draw you closer.

Barely pink. That is how I came to you, before I discovered your heat, before I spread my petals and drank you in. Barely pink. That is how I give myself to you, the base for all of your creative renderings upon the palette of my body as you use both hands to infuse color — a joint creation.

Your hands and mouth and mind are the elixir to coax the vibrant shades to the surface, saturated and deep, a promise fulfilled.

    Barely Pink, presented to us, your followers in all your innocence and all your naughtiness, but mostly and most importantly presented to D for the both of you to love and lust together.

      We are fortunate. (As are you two!)

    We started with you barely pink, but today the mirror reveals that I knew what to do.

      You so know what to do. Can you do it again? And again? And again?

      Man, that fall on the ice affected me more than I thought! I better get that checked out. 😛

    Shut up, Pink. You’ve always been deep. You just hide it behind all that blonde. 😛

      Hey, Liv! It’s been awhile, so I guess you haven’t heard about my ‘artificial depth’ experiment.

      I went brunette. 😉

    A beautiful ode.

      Thanks, Hedone. I also wrote an ode to tuna fish but it lacked the emotions that this one has. 😛
