An Affair with Vanity

* * *

The excitement is mutual, 
the passion contagious.
The play of his naughty hands, 
the smile on my lips.
The smell of his breath, 
the kiss on my feet.
The tingling down into his toes, 
the long black hair on my slithering spine. 
Smiles with the mirror in the morning, 

all make up for my vanity.
