Naked Reflections Poetry: Shameless and Unapologetic

Allow Me

“Sir, we will be arriving at the hotel momentarily.”

“Thank you, Amir. We’re ready.”

Morena slipped one hand in Franco’s

and the other around his hard bicep

while she snuggled her face

into the warmth of his shoulder.


“I’m so excited, Franco. This is like a dream.”

Kissing the top of her head,

Franco whispered,

“But I have yet to put you to sleep.”

Morena’s jitters bolted from her hands to her thighs

Their ride had come to a stop

Amir parked and opened their door.


Morena took careful steps out

On legs that still quivered

Franco joined her curbside

Where she suddenly seemed to shrink

Next to his massive frame

He nudged the small of her back

Guiding her through the sliding hotel doors.


Waterfalls and elevator chimes

Beckoned them

As they bypassed the registration desk

“Franco, don’t we need to check in?”

“My love, that was done hours ago.

Relax. It’s time to produce real dreams.”


They entered the elevator

Franco’s middle finger teased several buttons

Before pushing 11

“Are we really on the 11th floor, mi amor?”

“I would have it no other way for you, Princesa.”


Quietly ascending

With gentle breaths

And racing heartbeats

They engaged in a silent conversation

About the love they were about to make.


When the doors opened to their suite

Sunlight glistened on distant water

Beyond floor-to-ceiling windows

A rose-petaled path

At the entry

Weakened Morena’s knees

And she leaned into Franco

To kiss him before ecstatic tears choked her.


Franco picked Morena up

Carrying her into the master bedroom

Where an exquisite fruit basket,

Lavender roses,

And chilled champagne

Awaited them.


“Morena, mi princesa,

Allow me to have you.

Allow me to put you to sleep from exhaustion.

Allow me to produce new dreams.

Allow me to teach you

How to make timeless love

In Suite 1124 on the 11th floor.”
