Honeyed speak,
moist words
well balanced
on luscious lips,
ruby red,
with empty promises,
a battered ego.
Alluring glances,
longing eyes
focus intent
on hidden flesh,
golden tan,
with anticipated hopes ,
a discarded heart.
Glistening jewel
laid sumptuously
tempting fingers,
staid moral character
like a rubber band,
about to snap
an already weakening

    Very interesting. I love the two ‘egos’ fighting with each other. Makes this thoughtful apart from sultry… Reminds me of a saying that (in such a case) a man planning his defeat rather than escape….

  • Thanks Sybille……like that saying.

    Temptation beckons relentless until resolve is all but forgotten! How often have we bowed to temptation when we know better. Oh, but the flesh is weak! great write as usual Cos.Carole xx

  • Hi Carole, many thanks for your read and comment. The flesh is never weak though, always willing….it’s our other sides that crumple under pressure. Greatly appreciate it
