(Real Life Poem) Temptation


TEMPTATION 

 

What is it that overtakes, frightens or excites us

Why do we lower ourselves to show our own shame

We know that we shouldn’t touch that hot candle flame

Dripping with desire, is it worth the pain and the shame

 

 

Like fine dark chocolate sin melts on both of our tongues

The sweet taste of victory if we don’t mind the hidden sins

Yet is it worth the pain when in tears our wife says, explain

Our sins, her slit wrists, blood on our hands as she lay dying
