Try Working Him Up - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

there is a woman here
sultry, warm, affectionate
and - dying for love
there is a man here too
tied to the woman's back
his face away from her
both long for what the other desires
but are, however, as far as heaven and hell
s.o.s - if you love the man
try working him up

    Nice work John. The problem with working him up imo, is he has to come down again, without anyone to cushion his fall. It is a difficult balance. I think what she has to do, is turn him gently around to face her. The question is, is she strong enough? And can she achieve it, before they both burn up, in the atmosphere between the two places. Thanks for sharing. 10 from Tai (Report) Reply
