Linger

Its not cruelty
that makes me linger
upon your breathless impatience.

Its part mastery
fingertip control
the striking of taut piano strings.

Its part pleasure
Lost to time and space
Semibreves and quavers of whorls and ridges.

Its part imagination
I am you am me
a span shuddered by unison souls.

As dewdrop to the mighty seas,
A linger to your fevered please.

And temperature rises... *slow grin* Now you've got my throat all parched. Heehee. ^_^ Your words here have a certain caress -- in terms of both image and sound. (And I like reading them out loud, practice a little more, relishing the pauses.) ^_^
