Dessert

She comes to feed on me

this love men hunger for

she taps upon my window

begs entry at my door


She sets her table silently

I stare at her empty plate

She knows that I will come

and I know that she will wait


Why do I surrender

to perish in appetite

devoured by seduction

consumed in a single bite


Oh that I unlock my heart

to the hunger of a flirt

I am no match for a woman

who hungers for desert.

Thanks Geena! I"m in a playful mood and can't escape it! perhaps its my diet or the people in my life. I may have to change one of them.

Why do I surrender

to die in her appetite

For me, this is the central question raised --Loved this piece arb!

Audrey, I am so pleased that you have come by. Was still in my playful mood yesterday. I agree with you Audrey, It is the question that begs the question. Be well my new friend!
