Poem: Resist Temptation

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

Poem Summary

Resist temptation is a poem about a couple who struggles in their relationship until they decide to make love a home. As they embrace the fire, chosing to be in one another's arms they win the war against the devil's temptations. They start the day with a new outlook.

Resist Temptation

Scorching one’s fingertips

to embrace the fire,

sheltering from the wind

never felt so divine.


Capturing the sunlight in the morning

with bands of heat growing strong,

starting the day with a new perspective

making love a home.


Winning the war

against the devil’s temptations,

fleeing with honor

in one another’s arms.

Manatita44,

I hope your movie eneded the way you wanted.

Thanks for reading and sending a smile my way.

Challenges have a way of making one feel good...when you succeed.

Enjoy your relaxation time.

A bit like Ann's. I lost you for a couple of days and now here you are. 'Fleeing with honour.' I like that. I'm looking at a Chinese woman now, struggling to hold on to her honour, with a lot of bad people around her. A movie. Haha.

Let's see how it goes. She's stunningly beautiful and I want the protagonist to be lucky. Hehe.

Much satisfaction for those of us who conquer challenges. Peace.

Rosina,

I am well.

Temptation is a struggle for many, but trying to find the words to describe it is a bit difficult.

But I enjoy beating the devil at his game.

Love wins.

Take care & touch each moment.
