Simmering Eyes - Poem by Ray Andrews

Do I want to try those simmering eyes?
To go backward again to my carnal desires?
To play a part in breaking my heart?
And replay again our falling apart?

Will your fragrant perfume cloud my fear?
And your softened lips portend of cheer?
Shall I welcome you in as a a long lost friend?
Or keep it as lust, lest I should end?

Your naked body will give me release
Your cries of joy won't give me peace
Your scanty lace gowns will set me on fire
And will later subdue me-when I tire

Do I want to try those simmering eyes?
And deal once more with your eloquent lies?
With your smile and your wiles I'll take a chance
One more time with the devil I'll dance
