A Poem Ms Sage Challenged Me To Write In 2006, Reposted For You Sage


thanks to Ms.Dolly Parton And Ms.Sage Sweetwater for the inspiration

i thought that i was strong enough
built like a fortress
big and tough
but what man could resist you

with two emerald jewels
disguised as eyes
a body that the gods would prize
and i am just a man of flesh

i think about you all day long
and dream of you
when night has come
iím breaking her poor heart in two

she cries and begs me
'please don't go'
but iím caught in your web and so
i canít seem to help myself

i meet you on the edge of town
when the crimson sun
is going down
and we make the moon blush red

soft white skin, deep auburn hair
to your beauty
no other can compare
iíll lose my soul over you

i come home sodden
with your sweet scent
guilty, tired and passion spent
but itís not love itís only lust

it will only be a matter of time
til with another man
youíll leave me behind
maybe sheíll forgive me then

but until then, on lust iíll dine
passion drunk
on your sweet love wine
youíre the devilís favorite tool

Don J - YOU write with Passion, but your honesty is soothing!
Great poem for Sages Challenge!
Not sure what she really wanted from you, in a poem but this was a sure prized winner!

Jolene, is a pretty song too!
So, Jolene could not be tamed! What a shame!

Blessings and Peace, Purple_Passions, SHEExooo
Stay Safe! and God Bless You and Yours!

Male or female, lust is nondiscriminate. You write this with such passion, warmth and a hint of regret. Awesome!

God bless you. Kathy

Don Juan, a perfect match to my Jolene posted in my den. I so love your male-to-female version. You should be writing these as song material, especially yesterday's post Other Cowboy's Get the Best Horses - wonderful commercial lyrics. Thanks for reposting Jolene. This is so special to me. I am honored that you took your valuable time and participated in my challenge back then. Stay just the way you are...your quill is passionate and respectful to women and I acknowledge that. Be well always DJ.
