Play Me Like A Violin

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.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
