I feel her touch,
As nimble fingers brush,
Against keys of this cage.
Within, impulses rush.
She seems to peer inside,
A little gleam in her eyes,
As if asking why I'm here,
And what within my soul still hides.
Expended are all my tongues.
Lost, even the most noble one.
Only a low moan remains,
Welling up inside this prison.
Her scent, unforgetable now,
Like the soft wetness of her mouth,
The hot sensation of her touch,
That creamy smoothness of her skin.
Locked behind these cold walls,
By forces hardly known at all.
I find answers for others,
Knowing my own fate so well.
Alone, painted in shadows and grey,
The creature stirs and paces by day.
Testing the bars by night,
Longing to devour the keeper.

Great write! Reminds me of the beast I sometimes write of sauntering about in times of great sorrow. The imagery is very clear and just too relatable to not feel a connection to....

What live atmosphere you have created in the poem. I wish that bird could fly.

Great poem, each line leaves you wanting a little more and it has some mystery to it, it seems.

Longing to devour the keeper....I LIKE that ending line, Richard. Powerful feelings, sensual and otherwise in this fine write.. Speaking of writes, we haven't seen one from you in awhile. As you know by now, having nothing to say has never kept me from saying it. What makes you any better?....:o)...len

Imprisoned, by but Love, can bring one to only their knees in hoping for just one glance, just one touch....
Rich.....This is quite intense, bringing the reader to feel the emotions that are truly trapped in your soul....
Great visuals and sensations.....
I thought it was smooth, and the read was intriguing.....
Loved it....

Excellent work Rich especially liked the last two stanzas, but should'nt "devoir" read "devour".
