Love Thy Neighbour

My life’s not been the same
since you’ve lived in our street
Out of the blue you came
you looked so very sweet

.

With skin like porcelain
and eyes of darkest brown
Blonde hair streaked, not just plain
looks nice when it’s worn down

.

A stocking top I see
as you get into your car
Do you flash for me?
Is it just the way you are?

.

In the summer when it’s hot
you laze out in the sun
Displaying all you’ve got
is your idea of fun

.

When going out at night
your body is on show
You’re a really stunning sight
but that, I’m sure you know

.

I dream of you in sleep
we let the action start
No chastity to keep
our bodies play their part

.

You’re always in my head
on thoughts I do not labour
I say, ‘Hello’ instead
my lovely next door neighbour
