Naked, you are my master
Stilled, my aching bane
You warm my flesh with sunshine
Then chill my heart with rain
You're fire upon my whispers
And snow upon my flames
But naked, you are my master
A blaze I can't explain

Naked, you are delightful
Subdued, a dreadful bore
At times my muse, bewildered
But then a tedious snore
There's magic in your favor
There's tragedy in your song
But naked, you are delightful
My heart still clinging strong

Naked, you are alluring
Disguised, an evil threat
You keep me tied and tangled
Just to watch me sweat
My mind is oft enchanted
So easily you tease
But naked, you are alluring
While underneath, you freeze

Naked, you are my weakness
Reserved, I look for strength
You coil me ‘round your finger
Then hold my soul at length
My heart is just your play thing
Your affection, a cruel hoax
But naked, you are my weakness
Your passion's just a joke

Naked, you are my master
Stilled, my aching bane
This love, a cruel disaster
This fascination's pain
You whisper soft your secrets
That leave me so confused
But naked, you are my master
A game I'm doomed to lose

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
