Temptation (Free verse) by PoeticXTC
Speechless, I lay here wondering. Speak to me, for my mind is blank.
Countless hours listening, silence is my only language. Uncontrolled
feelings merging, but from where?
This stranger has seduced my thirst to learn, to feel, to love again,
unafraid to take a chance.
He speaks the recognizable; my soul. My every want and need strays from
his tongue and into my ears as if they were his own.
Tingling through my ears, beating the drums to a new symphonic rhythm,
subliminally serenading my desires.
Without knowing; he speaks the language of my heart, sending a tickling
sensation throughout my body, infecting me like a virus.
Welcomed; the virus spreads, taking over my emotions, tempted.
Denying refrain, I give in to temptation.
