You come to me stiff and unyielding,
Tense, shattering under too much pressure
I know what to do to soothe you
Draw a hot steaming bath
Take you by the hand, guide you in.
Make sure you are soaking completely
In the lovely bubbling liquid,
Fragrant with the earthy oil I drizzle in
I hum softly to you, massaging you
Gently as the oil and steam seep into you
You soften and sigh.
You are drowsy as I lift you out
You curl all up on yourself
Another drizzle of oil.
At my leisure I wrap you around my fork
Or decadently around my fingers
And slowly suck your long thin body down my throat
