Temptation Stood

Temptation Stood

A Poem by Kat Leila

Temptation Stood

Of all the things I could not resist,

Stood temptation

Amongst the idle thoughts,

The could be and what if’s

Stood temptation

 

Crowding out the good boys,

in a leather jackets and dark as night shades

Stood temptation

 

In a bottle of glass,

amber liquid, calling sweetly

Stood temptation

 

Clutched between her fingers,

Red lip print pattern, on the brown and white stem

Stood temptation

 

            Temptation stood

       Temptation stood

       Temptation stood

 

 

        But I walked away

Thank you for stopping by to read :)
Interesting format quasi mantra like to re- enforce the idea behind the impulse. It seems that you want to create that scene in were temptation surrounds. Oh , there are so many and such clever ones that even at the end when you emphasize that you walked away the mantra still applies as temptation stood and will stand.

Otherwise what would we walk away from?


Creative.

Thankyou

Thank you so kindly for the great review. I'm glad to see that you gleaned the meaning of it.
Very hard to fight temptation. I like the set-up and the thoughts in the poem. I like the way you led to the good ending. Many kinds of temptations. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
