Temptation: Six Word Fridays

by Belinda Munoz on August 6, 2010


Temptation, there you are in surplus
Fiddling with my strength, my weakness

Stunning on the surface, you trespass
Your flimsy promise dilutes my consciousness

You seduce me, assault my senses
Hoping I’m a sucker, no sale

Don’t you know, my trained hippocampus
Remembers your purpose, your evil animus

You create a rumpus, a circus
Your essence, messin’ with my business

I tell myself, I’m making progress
I practice, don’t need your service

But secretly I think of you
Oh, luscious pieces of breathtaking you

And after gorging on those exquisite words, now I’m drowning in drool like Homer Simpson! :P

Wonderful words! I had a real time getting past the photo, though. My mind kept moving to “do I have the ingredients to make those?”

Oh jeez, not even 8:30 am and my morning palate is warped ;)
Seriously, though, loved the poem, can imagine it performed as neo-rap, or maybe beatnik and cannot shut out the image of chocolate truffles that are now burned in my brain……..

How to resist such chocolatey lusciousness?
Maybe by rereading these gorgeous words.

Both truffles and this post: YUM! :)

You get props for resisting that!
Now excuse me while I drool…

Those are scrumptious words indeed Belinda! Who needs the chocolate Truffles? Your gorgeous poem has strenthened me in the midst of my 10-day fast. Well done!! :-)

OH YUM! – great words – you sucked me in – I will give in for sure

Oh..chocolates ‘tempt me’ especially lovely homemade chocolates..
What tempts me most is the sunset and the moonbeams.. I am drawn to the Light of both..mesmerized, transfixed, as I bask in the Light provided..wrapping around my body, allowing my inner light to glow…

Hahaha, well done, you are very good at this. My temptation is to say I am NOT good at this, Belinda is, so I will never try. xox Wilma
