Written for: Poetic Asides November 2016 Chapbook Challenge – Day 16
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Play (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write the poem.
Play me like a violin string,
sawing softly back and forth with bow
your fingers touching skin, awakening
a lust that liquifies like lava’s flow.
Sing to me in voice of smoothest honey.
More precious than a gem, your smile so sunny,
even in a lambent midnight moon.
Music–it invades my every cell,
haunting as a lake with cry of loon.
Your secret’s safe with me, I’ll never tell.
