Temptation Personified


You are temptation personified,

my vices in the flesh.


You are blue-eyed kryptonite,
dimpled weakness.


You are my hidden desires
wrapped with skin.


You are the lust in my pores,

seduction dripping from lips.


You are what my body craves,
the cure for the yearnings inside me.


You are everything I hunger for
and everything I should run away from.
