HENDERSON COUNTY GIRL by Jeff Callaway (Texas Outlaw Poet Poem)


by Jeff Callaway

these eyes

they had never seen

someone so special

so smoking-  hot

as she

was heaven made…


she came  out of the sky
one spectacular day

in a splendid array

like her mint

chocolate eyes

did breathe

in immensities

her eternal beauty

with intensity

upon every scene

she’d ever seen…


I mean only

God could create

such a masterpiece…
she was just like a dream

slick and cinnamon and sweet

with soft pink lips

I thought I’d only ever

kiss in my dreams…


but I did in reality…
red hot

she’s got

silken sheets of skin

where I wish

my hands had been

wandering free

all along…


all over her body

long and lean

put up on a pedestal
so pristine

she was like a virgin

she was an angel

with a halo  and wings

when I was just fifteen

and she was fourteen…


just two cool kids

from Henderson County

Malakoff, Texas USA…

and we made sweet love

for the very first time

on that white hot August day

back in 1991…


we lost our virginity

as life’s rich pageant

played on her cd player  in the sun…


laying in leaves of grass

sprawled in sheets

was so much more

memorable  and fun…


of course as is

want to happen

I awoke one day

and she was gone…


but in that one moment

in time
she was mine

and I was hers…


and we were one…


and she was…


my  Henderson County Girl.
