Play me...

Play me...


I am

so hungry

for music,

my lips crave

the taste of

your skin,

body wants

to spend forever

as your piano.

Thanks Ray.
The man I loved when I was 23 came into my life again 28 years later, we've now been married for 15 years.
He played keyboards in a rock band when we met (also classically trained) and I've always loved his hands.
Yes, it's deliberately sexy - written for him and published in a chapbook of love poems...

I'm, especially interested here Frances, as I have been a pianist all my life, and I know the importance of touch to bring out that silk sound. I do like your analogy, though often the "body" can be a harsh master (or mistress).

Quite a sexy poem may I say.
