Tempted... - Poem by christopher murphy

bonded by emotions
of sorrow and pain
nothing to lose
everything to gain

wanting to feel a lovers touch
his breath on your neck
your hand on his crotch

pulling away
this isnt right
liaisons in cars
after twilight

you took the vows
many years ago
before all the rows
the altered ego

you want to break free
why do it with me
what have i got

youve got the lot
the big car on the drive
the pool round the back

but you havent the heart
that you once had
for a heart without love
is a heart thats sad
