Look at her.

Look at the way that she’s laying there

Look at the way her shoulder protrudes slightly
So that her clavicles are more visible
And her face seems a little to want to hide
Which makes her appear modest and coy.

Look at her.

Look at her mouth.

Look at the way she parts her lips slightly
To give the appearance of being receptive
To make her mouth appear rounder
To give the appearance of being soft and aroused

Look at her.

Look at her eyes.

Look at the way she looks at you
Looking up through heavy eyelids 
To suggest longing
And at the same time, passivity.

Look at her

Look at the way she’s laying there

With her doe eyes

Her delicate nose

Her round cheeks

Her full lips

Her soft breasts

Her shining hair 

Which frames her face like a soft cloud

And falls in rich waves that carry your gaze

Up

And down

There for you to see

She’s there

She’s here

She postures

In context

So go on

Look at her

The way that she looks is so

She just looks so

She just looks

She looks

She just looks

She looks 

So

She Looks

Look 

Looks, she

Looks

She 

Look

Look-

In a moment you will no longer

Look- 

In a moment you will no longer

Look- 

Her shoulder much be aching

At this point

In this moment

In this moment She is barely maintaining your façade of effortless perfection and in the next she will surely fail and from past experience she knows that once she let’s you see behind her screen you will no longer look at her in the same way.

In this moment

At this point 

She is beginning to see

Soon, she’ll rise.

She’ll stretch her legs

She’ll get up

Yes

She’ll stretch her legs

Then

She’ll extend one limb and grab hold of the left

(your left)

Of the screen

She’ll use that edge to steady herself

And as she reaches out and with another gloved hand she grabs hold of the top of the screen

With both arms steady, she will swing her legs over the bottom of her image

Shuffle forward 

And

Step out of the frame.
