Poetry Picnic Week 26: Seven Deadly Sins

Secret Liaisons

Allow me to entice you
with my most appealing allure
As I invite you in to
a  liaison that’s so unpure

And together will we lie
behind the closed door where
All that happens we’ll deny
’cause you were never there

Our secrets will we confide
each time that we meet
As from others we hide
to share in our conceit

For what they don’t know
can never hurt someone
We just can’t let show
what in secret we’ve done!

‘Cause it will be exciting
and add a little spice
I know it’s so inviting
you need not think twice

I’ll hide away from you
the truth of my fire
Until the time comes due
for your life to expire

Then you will see me
in a whole new light
As forever you spend eternity
with demons in hell to fight!

Siren Of The Sea

I am the siren
of all the sea

Standing on the rocks
you will find me

I beckon the sailors
as they sail by

With a haunting song
unto them I cry

“Look my brave men
see me on the shore,”

“Come in to me!”
to them do I implore

“I offer you pleasure
if you just come in,”

“Gaze upon my beauty
my love you may win”

And with my allure
to them do I insist

For the burning desire
they just can not resist

As they sail in
I give them a smile

For upon my rocks
their ship becomes a pile

Broken wood and dreams
as I gulp them all down

Because of sinful lust
in my sea they drown.
