Reflectivity

such a tease in that mirror
with hypnotizing eyes
no gimmick there
just that the flesh has a mind of its own
it only listens to lust

such a torture for both our brains
but I am not going to chicken out
my mind trains itself discipline
it is not uniform thought
i am no machine

"let me rub lotion on me
a mundane task in the river of emotions"

Thank the God(s) for "a mundane task in the river of emotins."

I like thinking about the self discipline of the mind...and so true about lack of uniformity. We wouldn't want it any other way.

Love how rubbing lotion (taking action) removes the power of the rumbling thoughts. Well done!

Powerful lines: "the flesh has a mind of its own. It only listens to lust."

What a great shot. So few of us are one person or even understand our other selves.

Nice how you used those words to make a sensual poem, Gautami.
