I am watching her now, as she bathes, naked
And I look upon her, beautiful
Her body wet and glistening, perfumed
With fragrant oils, smoothe
And soft her skin, yet strong like bronze
Oh, lead me not into temptation!
And I am deep in want. Oh God!
Her sweet heady scent intoxicates;
Jasmine, Patchouli and Musk Rose
Rise on the midnight breeze. For
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
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
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
Yet this woman belongs to another. Damnation!
Forgive me Father, for I know not what I do!
There is a chill in the air, cold
A black cloud has descended, brooding
The bright white moon is over-shadowed, shrouded
My thoughts have turned in on me, decided
I have become a man with murder on his mind, condemned
