Temptation

by cricketjeff on March 26, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

It wasn’t much to ask
and it arrived
warm, inviting
perfect in all details
waiting for me
tempting me

I did not want to resist
I did not resist
I surrendered
Drank deep of the temptation
And was replete
satisfied
content
for now

but it never lasts for long
until you need
Another
cup
of
tea
