Play Me, I Squeak

You want me naked and fleshy
You wish
You want me drooling over your crusty lips
God damn
You want me heated and weak
So you can play me
Like dough

Just like every other trapped man
Tedium adnauseum

If you gave a little
And played a little
And offered your mind a little
And fuck it, thought to use your goddamn brain a little

Things…would be different
And I would gladly shoot for you

But your distance is weakening
The system
And your dispassion

Frustration bordering on despair bordering on distraction. PS – this piece has nothing at all to do with ‘Nothing’ ;)

    i get the feeling of a very emotially empty sexual relationship… and your words come through very raw here, Robert… and reaches one hell of a crescendo when you get to

    If you gave a little
    And played a little
    And offered your mind a little
    And fuck it, thought to use your goddamn brain a little

    the poem was already seething with frustration from the start, but when you got to that particular verse I could almost hear your raising your voice and see a thundercloud passing over your face


  • Thanks Dan. Yes, t’was a culmination of certain frustrations for sure. The ‘sexual’ reference is a social comment on ‘the flesh’ if you like, as well as mirroring certain personal histories and so yep somewhat personal – but absolutely driven by utter frustration and anger. A bit cathartic it was – now onto the rest of the day tralala lol ;)

    This is a powerfully “honest” piece Mr Knapman … raw, and heartfelt … I relate to the feelin that drives the words … good one. [thumbs-up]

  • Thanks Dave – born out of a moment and delivered in a flash it was. Straight from the core. Cheers buddy.

    Gawd, Robert! I’ve never known anyone to say so much, so poetically and so succinctly. You express what my soul yearns to say… but cannot. I just love it.

  • Cheers Kristy Lee .)

    Fantastic Robert! I’ve known a person like this too. They can be so wonderful, but cause so much hurt.
