Temptress She

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Temptress she, who moves my mind,

in glorious colours, bold but kind,

who implores my thoughts of doubt and fear,

to surrender darkness, and hold her near.


Temptress she, who lives for now,

in quiet confidence of past resound,

from learning life with a compassionate gift,

and embracing all not set adrift.


Temptress she, who loves complete,

no strategies of gain, no dark deceit,

who follows her heart with an open soul,

and in the name of love would make me whole.


Temptress she, who forgives my faults,

and acknowledges hers and accepts default,

as a part of life and the lessons offered,

to inspire growth and in union proffer.


Temptress she, my hope and dream,

not perfect but at least a willing seam,

that holds a fabric sure and strong,

to weather life and in joy belong.


Temptress she, who'll take my soul,

and soothe the hurt and pain untold,

until my heart can open wide,

and express those words I hold inside.



Dreams are just life that hasn't manifested yet, in all its extremes. Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.

Glad you enjoyed it starstream, and no, I don't keep my dreams written on paper in a jar.

That's amazing Lukas, and I do appreciate the story. She is quite a beauty alright. Did you get her name? In any case, your experience makes her real, rather than just a photo. Thanks man.

I met your muse from the photo in a Chinese fastfood this year in Prague (no kidding man). She quickly ran down the stairs and sat opposite to me to the other table, pulled out a cigarette and started looking into my eyes the way she does is on the pic (still not kidding). Then she took her mobile and started speaking Russian. When our eye game lasted too long, I decided to let her "implores my thoughts of doubt and fear, to surrender darkness, and hold her near." which was a true state of my mind. I took MY BIER and came to her table and we started talking in English (I'm Czech).

She is a beauty from the Black Sea coast, loving Rock music, and few verses in your poem describes my impression from her, like she has a broad russian Soul living for now, an embracing smile for those not set adrift by her and a compassionate gift for those men who won't never reach her.

Glad you enjoyed that ride, Lee. When I read back my own work, it astounds me: my moods, my intentions and fancy. What can I say, I'm a river deep. Thanks for reading.

Well what a pleasant ride that was to read. Smooth with little bumps in all the right places. I'd take that road again.

Very well written. You captured what I think we all look for. That perfect...yet imperfect one that completely and perfectly intertwines with our soul. Excellent poem.
