I was tempted


I knew this day was to come.
He would leave me.
Scattered. 
Broken. 
Beyond repair.

We could never be, 
he'd said.
I continued to love him.

 Each broken bit, 
Each inch of my being, 
Filling his flaws with my reason.

I drowned in his delicious words, 
Carried away by his waves, 
Surrendered my being. 

My body lit up at his name, 
My voice shook with anticipation
Fingers trembled at his thought.

What a sight he was!
Butterflies invaded my tummy, 
Words they were stuck.

In a whirl, as a storm would. 
Destroying me bit by bit. 
Upsurged my heart they did.

I was dying each day.
Yet loving him was deliciously sinful.
What was I to do? 

I was tempted.
I'm still tempted.

  1. Only if he could have known your feelings then, this poem might have sounded even more sweeter.
    But all the same, I am amazed by the spontaneity you write - or scribble - your poetry. Keep up doing the same.

    What was I to do? " - love can be naughty at times, playing with our hearts ... loved it :-)
