Bathsheba

I am watching her now, as she bathes, naked
She is.
And I look upon her, beautiful
She is.
Her body wet and glistening, perfumed
She is.
With fragrant oils, smoothe
She is.
And soft her skin, yet strong like bronze
She is.

Oh, lead me not into temptation!

“Bathsheba,
Bathsheba,
Bathsheba,
She is.”

And I am deep in want. Oh God!

Her sweet heady scent intoxicates;
Jasmine, Patchouli and Musk Rose
Rise on the midnight breeze. For
She is.

I close my eyes and breathe in her essence.

Her dulcet voice hums a lament,
And though Gods’ heart be for me,
My heart be for her. For
She is.

I am King David of all Israel and Judah.

And as I stand here on my Palace veranda
I wonder if she is aware of my presence.
And if so, how dare she tempt me! For
She is.

Stars fill the night sky in the moonlit blue.

Her delicate hand caresses her sensual shoulder,
She loves and cares for her beautiful body;
As a priest worships at the altar of his God. For
She is.

Yet this woman belongs to another. Damnation!

“Bathsheba,
Bathsheba,
Bathsheba,
She is.”

Forgive me Father, for I know not what I do!

There is a chill in the air, cold
I am.
A black cloud has descended, brooding
I am.
The bright white moon is over-shadowed, shrouded
I am.
My thoughts have turned in on me, decided
I am.
I have become a man with murder on his mind, condemned
I am.

For
She is
Bathsheba
