Free Verse, Poetry by Sarah

The Muse

One bite of your neck, was more than I deserved; my muse.
You were so open, with words so smooth; my muse.
You eased the tension from my body, like it were a playhouse; my muse.
Even Neptune himself, could not have been treated any more a king; my muse.
Your semaphorism* a constant tease, a hook, a drug; my muse.
A paradoxical stalemate of wanting, but never having you; my muse.
But in reality, you are a thief; my muse.
I have been stolen, and am lost in you.
