The player…

Previously posted on July 22nd of 2018.



Let me hum your name
like a lovely mantra.
With you love is a game
and you play like a gangsta’.
You play me like a violin,
you play me like a cello.
I vibrate to the touch of your
skilled fingers, and though
you always leave me behind
alone, lost and wondering
I keep asking for more, you’re
the best addiction I’ve been fighting.

    1. Hello Cyranny and Rob (The V Pub),

      What a nice post! Cyranny’s lovely poem reminds me of the song titled “Killing Me Softly with His Song” whose chorus is as follows:

      Strumming my pain with his fingers
      Singing my life with his words
      Killing me softly with his song
      Killing me softly with his song
      Telling my whole life with his words
      Killing me softly with his song

      As for the photo, I wonder whether the guitar is painted on. The general effect suggests the following three optical illusions: disappearing model, forced perspective and trompe-l’œil

      These illusions are all fun and fascinating to experience. You are welcome to find out about them at my very expansive post at

      Given that the said post is very expansive, please be informed that you might need to use a desktop or laptop computer with a large screen to view the rich multimedia contents available for heightening your multisensory enjoyment at my websites, some of which could be too powerful and feature-rich for iPad, iPhone, tablet or other portable devices to handle properly or adequately. A fast broadband connection is also helpful. 🙂

      May you enjoy to your heart’s (and eye’s) content!
