FreeVerse... Small Seductions





Your Small Seductions


She’ll not be a pawn for your truth,
Nor follow you blindly or silently.
She’ll not sacrifice self for love
Or give away name or integrity.

But she is prey for your small seductions
Glances melting,
Touches burning,
Casual endearments,
Pursuing to the point of being pursued.
Sharing thoughts but holding back
From shared experience.

What is the game and when will it end?
When will you set her free with the truth of your
Intentions, your ego, your state of mind?
Can you live without her, or love with her?

Such is her nature
That she is too afraid to ask,
Too proud to admit that
She may not be able to survive the truth.

Glances melting, touches burning - racy and yet somehow romantic at the same time don't you think?. Thanks for sharing this with us.

You wrote this one? Amazing. I see it as a woman questioning her man's true intentions. I think many of us can identify with this at some point in life or another!

I think I can see a younger version of myself in this. I really like the line "When will you set her free with the truth of your Intentions, your ego, your state of mind?"


Quite a lovely poem, Quid!
