I have fallen,
to her tempting ways,
a broken promise,
that’s strong then sways,
those eyes of the sea’s,
she knows I long,
the freedom of her voice,
the noose in her song.

She pulls without ease,
I fight like a flower,
buckled at the knees,
she stands like a tower,
such strength,
such beauty,
to resist is cold,
she fills me with warmth,
I’m weak to fold.

I am the string,
that lines her finger,
the dog that throws back its ears,
I surrender to her like a fool,
and I don’t know how many years.

She holds me in her embrace,
in her breasts so soft and wrong,
she knows I have another,
but shows the wetness,
of her thong.

I must really leave here,
this drug has took my life,
I’ll be soon to remove my heart,
it’s only the rolling of the dice.

    This is brilliant. Mens’ weakness for women; reminds me of that old myth of how when the Greeks stole fire from hephaestus’ forge, Zues punished them by creating woman. fun myth. Anyways, great writing, sir.

  • Thanxz N17, I’d hate to think what we’d be doing without woman ; )

    She holds me in her embrace,

    that line says it all for me. Really well written, the paradox and the human predicament, or the male predicament as you suggest here.
