She Wants To Swim - Poem by Stevie Taite

She wants to swim
I feel her pulling at my surface
In her cage, stirring
The waters lap to torment her chagrin
Shall I swim with her?
Beside her?
I possess the key, but freely would put you in charge
My offer of freedom to swim
Is to slip my sympathetic fingers
Into the moist
And coax her out
I know her every move,
when to be slow,
when to wait
When to quicken
She responds, yields and spills out into her release
She is the most divine creature to see set free
She would swim as well with you with some training.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Those pesky watery creatures! But they do need the exercise!

    Think you've won, Steph. Roobs lives in The Sunshine State. I reckon, up there, she can't trump this without her next 6 months being minus the sunshine. (Report) Reply

    bait to catch the readers? ? ? ? ? Very well then. This is very naughty Stevie. but you have finished it abruptly. You could have stretched a bit further. But anyhow you have succeeded. (Report) Reply
