Keeping you

In my eyes 
You are the only prize of the flesh ive ever wanted

So warm 
And wanton
Yet numb until you’ve heard my voice

A soft sound spilling from my throat 
Brings color to your cheeks
What would 
Could 
Silence do
Would it bring you to your knees

If I refused you
Once 
Ignored you twice 
And said ‘no’ to you a third time 
Would tears then stain your  cheeks
would you cry until you were weak
Frail with anticipation 
What would I do next

It is a short leash I keep on you  

Your heart 
Skips beats 
As my feelings change
