A Gentle Seduction


The culprit fire bellows within
Our sin, our heat, our perfect moment
A bud both carried now to foment
Her blood, my wine, that sweetest poison

To drink her eyes, a potion intact
A pact, unspoken, but of souls imbued
Her heart once idle, now pursued
The hour upon us here to act

A laugh and I'm soaring
A whisper and I'm lost
A kiss and I'm hers

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
