Lesley Young – Selected Poems #13

I can resist anything but temptation *

You’ll never be left on the shelf
Reclining there so provocatively
In your skimpy white robe,
Your golden-skinned body
Shimmering with promise
And perfectly formed. 

 How can I resist you – 
And your enticing wickedness?
”Take me”
You silently command. 
And I am rooted to the spot

 I must have you now
Lose myself in your softness
Ah, indulge in your fullness 
I know it will end in tears
When the sweet taste of you on my lips
Comes back to haunt me
As an inch on my hips. 

*(Oh, and doughnuts)
Original quote from Oscar Wilde
