That Flighty Temptress, Imagination

This week's Carry On Tuesday's prompt (#39) was taken from the Andrew Lloyd Weber musical Phantom of the Opera -- from the haunting song "The Music of the Night":

"Night-time sharpens, heightens sensation.
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination."
This poem came out *far* more sensual than any I have ever written. Don't be too shocked, k?

Muse of the Night
stirred by darkness,
sharpened by night,
Imagination wakes.

an elusive temptress--
demanding much,
frigid in response.

sensations heightened,
gasping in pleasured waves,
she releases
image upon image
so freely
that mind and pen
can scarcely embrace all.
