Strings played with passion,

elation of masochistic edge

pressed into skin – expression,

impression physical of artistry,

music of the spheres.

Her heartbeat elevates.

Each painful shift pleasures,

keens interpretation.

Her body responds, relaxes

into performance of the piece,

audience rapt by sound

(and more sensual sight of this,

a woman given wings for flight

with the power of vibrational show).

So profound, so simple,

and yet effectively satisfying

for all.
