Love Me Like...

Love Me Like...

A Poem by Alexa Apothic Red

Love me like this piano
Play me so gently at first
Let me be your dolce
Seduce me in
Moonlight sonatas
Find me weeping
And pick up the tempo
Make me swoon
By the bend of your bravado
Lay me down
And play my skin legato
You're there now
Approaching the bar
Of my crescendo
Your penetrating key strokes
Deliver me trembling glissandos
But I know you'll carry me
Over this bridge
Relax me to sweet resolution
My dissonant soul
Aligned with yours
Oh lord I'm praying for a fermata
... and then a repeat sign

Being a guitarist, this piece caught my attention. I love how you made the flow and visual imagery. Very nicely penned...

I've always wanted to write something sensual about a piano. Of course now, it will only be a long shot at best.

Aw, that's so sweet of you to say!! But you are definitely capable of the same and so much more...

well a piano is not only a sexy instrument but also a soulful one. i enjoyed reading the poem because love can be compared on the musical notes played in a piano but also the piano itself. very unique and rich of symbols. nice writing.
