Sue near, yet Sue far

I’d only been away one night
I saw this girl, a stunning sight
‘Hello,’ she said, ‘my name is Sue’
‘My name is Tom, how do you do?’

.

We had some drinks and a chat
I really sought no more than that
As time was ticking slowly by
I caught a twinkling in her eye

.

She wore a subtle, sweet perfume
her very presence lit the room
I liked her hair, so dark and long
for me, attraction was quite strong

.

I used my best ‘chat up’ line
we were getting on just fine
‘All systems go.’ was in my head
there she was in my bed

.

We made love, such sweet splendour
to my whims, she did surrender
I held her body close and tight
together we just felt so right

.

We kissed each other head to toe
and let our inhibitions go
‘Tom!’ her voice sounded shrill
to leave my fantasy took will

.

‘This is my husband Matt !’ she said
I rubbed my eyes and shook my head
‘A lovely girl you’ve got here mate
but that you do appreciate
She’s been delightful company
until this brandy got to me’

.

‘Don’t worry,’ Sue then joked with me
but under the table touched my knee
‘If Matt here hadn’t braved the weather
we could have spent the night together … .’
