Today’s prompt is to write a love poem . . . but the object of the poem should be inanimate. You can write a love poem to your favorite pen, the teddy bear you had as a child (and maybe still have), or anything else, so long as it’s not alive!
(This is not my first love poem to the same inanimate object. This love is eternal…) I wrote this one in my own sort of echo form.
Before my eyes even open
Before the sun rises or shines
I long for the taste of you on my lips
I long to hold you close to me
To feel you pressing against my eager mouth
To feel your heat, your liquid love
Filling me with vitality and passion
Filling me with devotion and ambition
And when I’ve taken all you have
And when I’ve left you empty and cold
I promise I will love you, drained or full
I promise I will fill you up again tomorrow
