Temptation

Temptation

A Poem by .:Arianna:.

Her body swang,
serpentine,
to a music unheard,
but rythm created,
in breath and heartbeat...
Racing,
embracing
before him,
for him,
and for the night only...

For when day would dawn,
she would be gone.
And he would
lock his wild heart,
take over...
He'd wear his brown robe,
silent...

He'd sit at the table,
breaking bread,
as the first rays of light,
newborn hope,
would scatter
through the thick glass window.
Pushing darkness to exile...
and so with it, his heart...

He'd won again.
But for how long
would she haunt him?

When one starts to doubt,
is when weakness finds a chance.
When one starts to wonder 
secrets in the dark,
unconfessed...
''What if...?''

Down the tower,
he'd descend
to the chapel,
slowly.
The echoes 
of his lone footsteps,
forming words,
whispers
around...

Guilt,
is a strong enemy,
creating fears
that are not there.
As he would look
into hs brothers eye,
and think...
They know...

The cross would be
the only thing 
close to his chest.
He'd freeze his face 
to a contemplative smile,
of grateful satisfaction.
He needed nothing else,
but what he had...

And too soon,
would the golden sun
flee to the West again!
Abandoning him
to the mercy of the night.
He'd pray
pray,
pray,
and he would cry...

Unwilling,
he would 
shut his tired eyes.

And from the haze of vanity,
through mist and murk,
she'd rise glorious and grand.
And in one mere second,
she could make him watch
her pagan dance.
The flames in her hair,
the silk round her thighs...

She could make him
drown in her gaze
forever,
until dawn
brough upon never,
just for now...

For when day would dawn,
she would be gone.
And he would
lock his wild heart,
take over...
