Shibari (an erotic poem)

shibari: the act of tying, binding or weaving a human subject.
Shibari is artistic in nature (specifically, live art) although may be used as a form of BDSM or kink practice. Shibari does not assume the meaning of sexual bondage outside of BDSM circles.

Free from the labors
of decision
of passion
Unbreakable fibers
securing soft flesh
criss-cross across chest
accentuating breasts
thighs moulded into new form
arms laced, beautifully adorned
more than gold ever could
A will stronger
than my own, unheard of
How does the rope not burn
with the fire it contains
