Temptation

Image courtesy: Tumblr

Never thought I would say this 
But the day has come to yield 
To temptation, to the sinful present,
And to make tantalizing memories...

I can smell it on your breath,
By the lies you whisper in my ear,
In the unmasked glory in your eyes,
But still I weaken to temptation

Smoke arises from the glowing tip
As you put the cigarette to your lip
And you smile at me
For I have given in to temptation

The pain is sharp but you hold me 
Chained with your eyes, 
Watching my life ebb away
Rejoicing in my wretchedness 

But it now longer matters
My misery is put to rest
As death kisses me with 
The ultimate temptation
