I call it the “snare of the fowler”-
A dead fall whatever it’s called.
Baited by our own temptations-
Unwary, we’re easy enthralled.

Call it a madness, or magic-
We’re each victims to our desire.
Results all too often are tragic-
We’re drawn like a fool to the fire.

The equation is painfully simple-
Requiring one woman, one man...
The look in the eyes is the trigger,
Give’s lie to the ring on the hand.

Each woman at heart is a wanton-
Each man in his heart is a knave...
The fire in their heart burning hotly,
Illicit the pleasures they crave.

And yet we are bound by our customs
Till death do we part, by a band-
Forget what you see in the eyes, friend-
But take a close look at the hand.

A great point hun, many people give in to temptation, I'm glad to see that you're not so easily swayed!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Another great poem...Mine fail in comparisson to yours, but that is ok because I do so enjoy yours!


 ~*~ Hell is not a place of fire and a devil with a tail and horns. But a place of torment because the light of God is gone. To escape this, accept the blood of Jesus Christ! ~*~
