Tempt Me

You make my pulse race.

Your scent is a delight.

To have you just this once,

Is it a temptation I must fight?

 

I long for those feelings again,

When you satisfied my only need.

This voice in my head; a warning.

Must I really heed?

 

The lies will not block out the truth

Can I justify this one cheat?

I could have turned away

We would never have to meet.

 

No one would ever know,

It would be just between us.

Thank God thereโ€™s just one cupcake left

Or my pants would surely bust!
