Once Upon A Time

158_Once Upon A TimeOnce upon a time, his gaze studied every inch of my fair body, as if it were a wonder born in a bygone era, a curiosity fashioned from canvas and brushstrokes and oils, worthy of the gallery wall, the hungry crowd, deserving of his centre stage.

Once upon a time, his hands roamed with passion, urgency and fervour, as if these curves were chiselled from cold and unyielding marble, this skin and flesh brought to fiery life by desire and her sculptor, softening under his touch, melting on his lips and tongue, reaching and begging for his own thick hard need to claim them.

Once upon a time, he yearned to feel, devour, remember, the woman beyond this creation, the being beyond mere pixels on the screen.

 Slink in to see this week’s delectable players…

    Once upon a time, I yearned to feel, devour, remember, and I always will.
    Maybe there is a “happy ever after”? 🙂 xx

    What an amazing photo! I love the shadows and how you’re almost hidden in the back. Beautiful! Xxx

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.09 6:34pm

      Thank you so much! I was very lucky with the light in this amazing hotel room that morning… x

    Exquisite… seductively exquisite. I love the play of the white linens against your delectable curves…

    Devour? Yes…

    I love the color contrast here, how the bright white stands against the dark background and the body is a nice midground between the darkness and the light.

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.09 10:46pm

      I was really hoping that contrast would work as well as appeal. Thank you for the lovely feedback, Simina…

    Such an amazing image. You look really great.

  6. osbasso 2015.08.03 1:54am

    Once upon a time, I used to wake up at night because the boogey man was in my room. I would have saved myself years of therapy if he looked like you!

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.09 10:56pm

      I don’t know… I’ve been told I can be pretty scary… 😉

    Beautiful photo: velvety black background, crisply white draped fabric in the foreground, and lovely twilit curves in the middle. Very painterly.

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 9:50pm

      I’m really tickled you picked up on the painterly quality of the shot, Zoë. It’s the main reason I thought it would work well for the prompt…

    jesus Christ, that WOULD make the perfect oil painting…..

    oh and for me….. change “once upon a time” to EVERY SINGLE TIME!

      This comment deserves to be printed and framed! 🙂

    This is breathtaking and, coupled with your words, heartbreaking. Absolutely beautiful.

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 8:11pm

      I’m really touched you think so highly of it, Maria…

  11. Marie Rebelle 2015.08.04 5:14am

    Just beautiful!

    Oh goodness, this is so beautiful!

  13. Curvaceous Dee 2015.08.04 8:12am

    Oh my – this is stunning! I really like how the brightness and the focus is on the sheets, and yet the eye is still drawn upwards to you. The colour edit on the walls adds to the fantastical nature.

    xx Dee

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 11:33pm

      This is such incredibly high praise – thank you, Dee! I confess that this shot has had minimal editing thanks to the the beautifully dark and aged wood panelling in the room. x

  14. Molly 2015.08.04 10:40pm

    I love how you appear to be emerging out of the white sheets as if you are being created by them, set free from them in fact. Beautiful


    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 11:30pm

      I absolutely adore your reading of the shot and love the idea of emerging from the sheets… x

  15. Ember 2015.08.04 11:23pm

    Seductive, mysterious, and stunning as always… To reminisce the once-upon-a-times… Sigh…

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 11:37pm

      I know that sigh oh so very well. Sadly.

      While mine is tinged with hurt, it’s also written through with a sweet gratitude for your gorgeous words…

  16. KaziG 2015.08.06 3:34am

    Beautiful and wistful… he is the one missing out!!

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 11:38pm

      You’re so amazingly sweet for saying so, Kazi. I hope you’re right… x

  17. Malin James 2015.08.06 5:45am

    This is so beautiful and the accompanying text is lovely. You’re wonderful at pairing the perfect words to perfect image.

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 11:40pm

      Coming from a talented wordsmith whose work never fails to inspire me, this means a great deal. Thank you, Malin…

  18. HappyComeLucky 2015.08.06 7:24am

    I have no idea how you create images like this but wow.

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 10:20pm

      That’s such an incredible compliment, thank you! I was lucky to have had the opportunity to stay in an incredible hotel while in Manchester. The room and the light deserve most of the credit…

  19. John Brownstone 2015.08.06 8:55am

    Sexy and desirable

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 11:41pm

      You always know how to make me smile, JB…

  20. bhp 2015.08.07 4:29am

    I’ve stood and stared in awe and wonder at the works of many a great master.. But nothing appeals more, or stirs greater, than the immaculate work of art that is You, CM.

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 11:45pm

      You are the dearest, most generous friend, bhp.

      Your words and admiration have me kept me warm on many a cold and lonely night. And tonight is no exception…

  21. Jack (and Jill) 2015.08.07 11:03am

    You always post photos that make me salivate, that make me hunger for your delicious form, your lovely mouth, your exquisite physical beauty. Then you follow it up with words so profound, so deep, so heartfelt that I desire your intellect, your mind, your heart just as intensely.

    All of that said, I feel like this photo has raised the bar. It is, of course, profoundly erotic, the story clearly told in the words that follow. But I love the framing, with you on the right and the left side unoccupied. The ghost of the pillow and the lampshade make me wish I was on that side of the frame. To those who visit your blog, this is not merely a post. It’s a life-changing experience. Well done, as always.

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.08.10 11:53pm

      Right now, I’m at a loss, Jack. Your praise has left me speechless and blushing. To receive such glowing feedback means so much, more than I can possibly say in words, or with these inadequate little letters and syllables.

      If my prose, desire and photographs can speak to you, as well as others, in some small way, then I am – and forever will be – a contented woman.

      Thank you for your deeply moving thoughts and, most of all, for your friendship and support…

    Beautiful words…beautiful image.

    • Cheeky Minx 2015.09.14 9:25pm

      I’m touched you think so highly of it, Kenny…
