For Like A Flower Devises - Poem by Mark Heathcote

I held her close in my arms
For like a flower devises
I became helplessly captivated
In her litmus blue glances…

Each wink of an eyelash
Becomes a Venus flytrap
A lure of honey withheld.
One-bite of her lips a mantrap!

Befalls all … entreated to her charms
For her beauty is such,
All your abstinence, disarms
For just one longing touch.
