I Am Temptation

I Am Temptation

A Poem by TopHatGirl

Don't resist.

I am temptation.
Touch me and you can't let go.
I look sweet but taste bitter.
My heart is twisted with your desires,
lacing black.
I wrap my arms around you,
and taint your soul.
I get lonely without you.
Stay with me.
I'll force you to,
if I must.
I am a
Attracting you.
I have a friend
you should meet,
his name is Addiction.
He looks like me,
sharp teeth and
hollow eyes.
Do not be alarmed.
I love you.
Stay with me.
I can sink my
 long into you.
Trust me,
it only hurts forever.
Don't resist me.
I am intoxicating,
you can not leave.
Play with me.
I know exactly what you want:
Don't walk away from me.
If you try,
I grow larger,
and stronger.
I roar louder,
and use every trick to pull you back.
You scream, echoing through the night.
Do not be alarmed.
I love you.
Don't leave me.
Please don't walk away.
I die without you.
It's true, I need you.
I can't survive.
Have mercy.
No, please, stay with me.
I need you.

The cloud of confidence that begins with a malevolent seduction follows the winds of your twisted emotive words, as a deformed image of fanged beauty, ethereal and wanton, dances upon the screen, there is a throne thrust beneath her feet. Casting aside all but the victim of her desire the devil licks its bloodied lips. Until through the fluid motion of your words all mischief comes to a halt, in the final desperation to keep them with you your walls crumble masks shatter and you are left the vulnerable self. Still wanting to grasp the last shred of love, begging and giving everything left to give, resorting to the lower self. Beautifully harrowing.

Wow... That was a really good poem! I thought you did an excellent job with the free-form style. I think the addition about Addiction, his brother, was uneccesary, though. Other than that, great!
