Play Me She Said

She always felt

Like a fine tuned instrument

As they playfully

Came together

Melting into the heat of passion

Like guitar strings

He’d strum her body

And in return somewhere

Far off she could hear

The sounds of a piano playing

Or if their lovemaking

Was slow and gentle

Perhaps the music

Of a violin weeping in joy

Play me she would say

Whenever she wanted his love

Together they made

Music so fine

That they were never sated

And composed far into the night

When finally they came together

In a loud crescendo

This resounded

And echoed

Long after they lay still

It always seemed

That before the dawn

Had broken

Before the sun’s rays

Came over the horizon

Breaking the dark of night

That she would wake

With a pounding heart

Wanting him all over again

Wanting him to play her

And again it would begin

Until a full orchestra

Seemed to be playing

But her favorite

Always was the violin

Which he knew

How to play so fine

Gently and slowly

Until passion flared

It was what she loved best

And over and over again

She wanted him to play her

And take her far

Far from reality
