The Promise

The Promise

A Poem by Cheri Roberts

Surrender, spellbound,
to the persuasion of the inevitable.
Fragments of anticipation,
hypnotic in their influence,
flaunt themselves shamelessly
across the minds wandering eye,
to pull deeply inside at the core
of sensation and need.
The scale of rationale tipped beyond reason,
overflowing with wanting,
mindless intentions inflamed by the promise
of what is yet to come.
