In sound’s more gentle graces
Many failed with noises stifled, stark
But you’re a jaguar in a cello
Your voice sultry, dangerous, dark
And oh, how it paces
My heart to quaken, quivering
For it’s only you, sweet fellow
Who leaves me shaken, shivering

Ooooh! That was sensual, with a sizzle…But you’re a jaguar in a cello
Your voice sultry, dangerous, dark….what lines……..
Thank you, Ain!
A setting for passion with a voice of: But you’re a jaguar in a cello. Good one!
– that is an ingenious description!!
“But you’re a jaguar in a cello”
Ooh I love this one! 🙂
You’re welcome 🙂
a powerful and dangerous seduction in these words
What a line…”but you’re a jaguar in a cello!” Oooh, yes! Love what you came up with here, Raivenne.
Like others, “a jaguar in a cello” stood out for me. Deep, but mellow, exotic, and dangerous. I can see why that would make the narrator shiver!
Exactly! Thank you.
You write of the passion so well… and yes the jaguar stands out.
Brilliant! I love the rhyme scheme and the startling imagery 🙂
