Temptations, temptations, temptations,
Temptations of the heart
We all obtain from the start
Temptation causes confusion,
& much aggravation,
even disillusions.
My temptation to do you,
even though I do not love you.
Tempted to cheat on my man
Why?
I cannot understand.
The man I love,
& he, me.
The man I know
I want to with forever be.
Even though to give
into this temptation
would be oh so satisfying,
but I know eventually
I will end up hurting my
one & only true love
& not just me.
Temptations until the end.
Even tempted when
we end up at crossroads
we'll be tempted to choose
just which way we want to go.
I feel I may regret this,
If I do not give in,
but if I do what then?
What happens, happens.
I will just have to wait & see,
what lays ahead in my life for me.
I know I'll be tempted, as will you,
until the end.
but for now, I guess it's just best,
we simply remain close friends.

Very well done! Ah, yes, temptation is always lurking around the next corner! The devastion and havoc that it can cause, if given into are definitely not worth the moment of pleasure. Again, very well done!
