We were asked to try stepping inside a work of art and writing from that perspective.
The Baker's daughter
I see his desire burning into my body
with each glance and brush stroke.
I hold the power in a coy look and pose
showing him the pleasure he seeks.
I'm so much more than a mistress
as I tease his deepest desires.
A baker's daughter, living a secret
a double life, all my own.
I wear a band bearing my lover's name
a token of his adoration, but love?
His one true love is his painting's
and so I will be.
I'm the image of a real woman
captured forever on canvas
as his true love.
