I’m Tethered

This burning need has got me caught,
I’m tethered

She’s collared me with sweet release and
supple leather

Keeping me on leash by burning passion and
dream-wing feathers

Demanding I write regardless of the world,
or weather

I’ve come to recognize her as my fantasies and
mind’s bellwether

I must do her bidding or she’ll go, abandoning me

I thought she was forever lost, so I’ll happily walk in
my muse’s tether

After all, she’s my soul’s first lover


Written for this weekend’s prompt by Sammi Cox. The prompt word is tether and the word count is 80 words.
