Falling Into Temptation

Falling Into Temptation

Tamya Anderson, Editor; pearly fonji

 

It’s really hard to resist temptation

Distinctly when that temptation has a nice smile

 

I ask myself why?

Why can’t I fight the urges I feel when I see you

I tell myself not to smile, laugh or show any sign of weakness

 

But I believe I’ve fallen too far into your temptation

So, I ask you, are you happy now?

 

Happy that I can’t hide the true emotions I felt for you?

Happy that I no longer remember back to when I haven’t stressed myself sick over your wellbeing?

Or … are you happy that you know no matter what you do I’m going to be there to ensure your safety?

 

It really is hard to resist temptation

Distinctly when it has me in its chokehold
