Play Me



Prompt: Use the picture above as an inspiration for your poem


Even before you strum your tune on my skin
I quiver
A song begins to course through pulsing veins

In the resonant silence
taut flesh peaks in a fervent plea for your silken caress

But you spin out a melody of torment
your hands suspend rhapsody an inch above fulfilment

sending lilting limbs rising and falling
into sensuous rhythm

Then your fingers play your refrain on me

and I soar on sublime notes of ecstasy
