I like to play with words,

As I like to play with you.

So, I play with the words

That will best describe you,

And those that will name

The parts of you,

I best like to play with.

I give you my word,

And you give me one word,

Any given word,

And I will make it relevant to you.

Give me a part,

And I will play it.

Give me a part of you,

And I will play with it

Now, give yourself to me,

And I will play with you.

But way after the foreplay,

Who will get the last word ?

Would you like to play ?

      I'd like to think the hours of sensual play do not evade us with age, but what do I know, I'm just an amateur writer. However, age brings a few things along worth sticking around. Thank you for your amicable words, my fellow poet !

      ....yes I would love to come over here and play ....... lol - your hallowed hubspace is a veritable playground and world class forum for some pretty amazing writing - and I love how you pick your 'images' to go along with your hub presentations - it makes for a very nice package and it's something that the lazy epi man should do - where do you get your pictures from - a public domain site? which one?

      But epi-man is not too lazy to follow you - so here goes ...... lake erie time 11:37am
