The Lion and the Lamb

the lion and the lamb

The Gift

The stage curtain opens and on the floor did walk,

my gallant leading man of sorts, at least for once this night.

His role you see is director and conductor

And I his obedient puppet lady…..

I crave the direction, for him to pull my strings.

I dance and lift a hand to his mouth, a blush upon my cheek, fire in my veins...

Splay a thigh to his request, or on bended knee I bow…..

The scene suddenly dark, the light snuffed out. … oh my blindfolded eyes reveals

the sweet aromas of leather and sweat…… senses are heightened, salty and bittersweet.

Sounds amplified, silence deafening……. To make me wait and hear the ticking of the clock…..as time stands still, he orchestrates the music and the tempo.......

Anticipation, anxiety, surprise…….. first ice and then heat…….. soft words ….. arousal…………want and desire....... denial or release......... all at the tip of his baton.

Memories of lessons past, roles that brought applauds…… craving the kindest reviews,

billboard status……. and reward, oh sweet satisfaction for my drama played, a standing ovation!

My playwright stops and stalls the scene, characters frozen in time

He leans forward to have my ear……….. his lips upon my lobe he bites

And reminds me of The Gift he says……… bring it to me……… finish the final act my sweet……..

So upon his sculpted chest I lay, the object of his obsession.

A possession so prized it is earned ...... and given to my maestro as the Ultimate Gift......... my submission.

thank you Peter. it was a challenge piece I recently composed for my writing class. I am thinking of changing it to third person rather than first person. Your thoughts? lvh

That would change the intensity of it. But what is it you are trying to convey? I liked it fine the way it is. Try it see how it feels. Peter

nuf said, Trying to convey the scene, the raw emotions, the exchange between the two of them. But "I" am not the woman in the poem, it was just written that way. thank you for your feedback. :) lvh

Very erotic!! ;) You write this with a lot of heated excitement! Can't get hotter than this! Performance, submission, "...all at the tip of his baton." Works in two ways as poetry often should :) Great job writinginalaska!

I can't quite place it but the way you formatted it... the flow. It's amazing. I want to figure out what you did and use it. It's wonderful. I found myself pulled in and envisioning all kinds of things- nothing perverted mind you, but beautiful. Very well done!

thank you for your kind comments CodeMaster. You might also enjoy http://hubpages.com/literature/Hush-me-Now... It is one of my favorites. The formattting/style for The Lion and the Lamb is uniquely my own. If it has a proper name I am not aware of it. You should hear this poem read outloud, amazing. ;)

Absolutely incredible...it must be those long Alaskan nights that feed your thought processes to that erotic extreme. The metaphores and the symbolism......very well done and very thought provoking.

Then my mission is accomplished Badegg, to create poetic metaphores and symbolism in the reader's mind. A writer's "hook" indeed! Yes, winters nights are long here, but that has little to do with it. ;) Thank you for the heartfelt comment on this piece. lvh
