Lure of Temptation

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Lure of Temptation

Losing one’s way

in the midst of the silent echoes

drawing him close to the edge.


Life’s catastrophes

knock upon the door

sending him to hell and back.


He tries to remain pure at heart

but the devil introduces an interesting hand

tempting him along the way.

lure-of-temptation

Be sober-minded;

be watchful.

Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

— 1 Peter 5: 8
