"Night of Temptation"

"While your Lips Are Still Red"
"While your Lips Are Still Red" | Source

"We've danced this dance before.

We've fallen into this trance.

All else has been forgotten

for one night of pure romance.

Temptation has seduced us

into a moment we could not miss,

for everything comes back to me,

the moment that we kiss.

But sure enough this will not last,

for it is her you now belong,

one night is all I get,

when I once had you for so long.

So long ago in another time,

but this is an illusion of my mind.

My heart so weak, my heart so strong,

I will be alright. I will carry on."

Morning Nikki.

Another beautiful poem. But this is not as hard as some of your other poems. Do i detect a softening in your style or is this one of those flash moments when you where dreaming?

Which ever, it doesn't take away your wonderful talent of writing poetry.

Take care Nikki and have a nice day.

thank u all for the amazing comments. Deviantart.com always has the perfect picture I am looking for. Ghaelach, now I am not always hard, or dark in my writing. I've written many a sweet poem. but this was in response to Surfeitts poem linked at the top. I commented this under her poem. and I liked it so I posted it in its very own hub :)

....well I always find poetic temptation in your writing - because you're so free and spontaneous in your spirit and in your soul - and gee I love your new profile picture - that smile could generate and light up a 100 hydro power plants - sending you these warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 2:12pm

this reminds me of "Careless Whisper" *now singing*

I feel so unsure

As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor

As the music dies, something in your eyes...

This is pure sexy and seductive. A lot of hubs are so sexy these days. Why cant Hubapages add the SEXY tab!

blaise I would love a sexy tab for sure! that would be awesome lol. thanks. if you liked this one and it reminded you of that song then you should read my poem "Dancing With You" and good song. I like the version by Seether of course. one of my fave bands. saw them in concert not that long ago.

Vinaya yes nothing lasts forever. eventually everything and everyone has an ending of some sort. Thanks for commenting.
