Image for the poem Temptation


I don't know anything about you yet    
Who are you, and for whom        
You give your tender smiles        
But what force beckons me to you        
Like a black hole,          
your extreme gravity pulls me in        
You know that very well        
Taking steps to the edge,          
I'm falling for you        
Even though it is obvious to me        
that you are trouble     
The sign says to stay back 6 feet      
I am trying to keep balance,          
from losing control          
But it is impossible to be careful        
I am to close to the edge    
I'm flying to you like a butterfly          
attracted to the light        
There is no ban for me        
I'm ready to take risks, which means        
I need to stop this now        
And that's why it's time for you and me          
to designate roles        
Though it's clear to me that you are  
trouble, any closer to the edge and
it is impossible not to fall    
I try to keep a distance but you open
your heart to me
Look me in the eyes,          
I am afraid because of what I want        
Because we cannot do that        
And it's clear to me that you are          
so dangerous        
So I need to be very careful
