Honey Trap

Honey Trap

A Poem by John Alexander McFadyen
"

Beware!

"

Honey Trap

You descended upon me,

vital and alluring,

dripping

in sweet juices,

soft kisses,

intimate touches.

But all was smoke

and mirrors,

choking deceit,

that strangled

all faith from my soul.

For years I followed

your 'Twitter' call

but you remained hidden

in the depth

of internet subterfuge.

Promises made

and broken,

bait offered,

tit bits,

morsels                              

to entice my palate.

And when I asked

for more,

I was decried,

heretic!

But all you offered

were empty plates

with no taste,

not even an hors d'oeuvre.

Now I am but a shadow,

starved of dignity.

I have no relevance,

but the smirk

of a fool.

And you?

the vixen,

the ghoul

who still patrols

the internet

as an angel

with legs akimbo.

we can be sucked in so easily...internet predators and "harmlessly" dishonest people abound ...not good...never good ..danger dangeer adnger ..in this line did you mean bait not bate?
"bate offered,"
got just the right chuckle from the next line :
"tit bits" ;)) as well as from the "legs akimbo"... otherwise a serious composition everyone needs to keep in mind ... we fake ourselves to each other's face let alone on the anonymous internet spaces ;{
E.

You are welcome John.
The honey trap was used in Ireland (and other places) to literally lure men to their death. The practitioners of that particular subterfuge are the lowest of the low.
You speak the truth with gusto here John.
