By Dreamless

Lick the wound
You inflict
To keep me here
Imprisioned in this dollhouse

This plastic mansion
Decorated with dusty dreams
Tea parties and games
Scripted sensuality

Feed me what I need
When you need it
You have me trapped
I am your toy

Do as you please
If it pleases you
I can't escape
Your love.

    I'm beyond impressed with your writing. Your mindset is phenomenal too. I say/write this because it's rare that I read a male poet, and he expresses love emotions so elegant the way you did. The attention to detail is what is addicting, and I cannot believe that I haven't decided to read you,, until now. ..shakes head.. and Applauds- Scholar

    I have a feeling you've been here before, I'm in love with this poem. So well captured.
