Had she not turned away
It might have consumed her,
That one look;
As terrifying as it was intriguing.
As electrifying as they were enticing.
She meddled with reckless thoughts
Like Eve at the sight of forbidden fruit.

As a man, I love when that happens. Although, my intentions are much different nowadays.
Haha. As a woman, I walk away regardless of the intention. (You like Joseph ran from Pharaoh’s wife?) 😂
That’s because you’re wise. I like that. But you should run if you see me anyway!
Aha! Gotcha. Will do
Beautiful words with a hint of something special.
Evocative poem. Also love the artwork…is it yours?
Yes, thank you. I doodle sometimes.
Eeegads… that is what kills me about people with artistic talent…they always seem to down play it “oh, I doodle” or as a friend always tells me “anyone can do this” lololol. Yes, I’m jealous!
Aha well I can’t cook, or bake anything to save my life. 🤷🏽♀️ to each their own?
True enough 🙂 We all have our areas to shine!

Beautiful work; concise; whittled to the bone. Lovely outlook; clearly graceful
Keep writing; you’re gifted
I loved your artwork, I would not call that a doodle. Great poem.
Lovely poem. A million thoughts can pass through a single glance.
Oooooh love the vibes!!!!!
Love this poem. Thank you for sharing 🙏
We all have those reckless thoughts sometimes, don’t we?
I love your “doodle.” It’s beautiful and poetic. There’s a depth to it. You have the total package.
Lovely, concise piece. Love the imagery at the end. Anyways, just wanted to pop by and say thanks for liking my recent post ‘Back Then”. I like that you instead of turning away, you simply let my poem consume you😊.
Temptation so often has unforeseen consequences 🙂
And so we flee the scene like Joseph dis from Potiphar’s wife.
