Temptation's Angry Flame

by Karl Wild GG23   Jan 10, 2007

It lurks in the still of night,
Like an animal it stalks it's prey,
Always staying clean out of sight,
Never showing it's face in the light of day.

Around every corner it haunts you,
Over the tracks and around the bend,
It will pursue your lies untrue,
And your dreams it will apprehend.

Like warm breath on freezing cold glass,
Your vision will soon become a blur,
It's violent storm will never pass,
And it's commands you cannot defer.

You'll slip into it's treacherous grasp,
Fall to the hands of it's evil fate,
The fear alone will make you gasp,
And your soul it will desecrate.

In time you'll finally recognize,
The consequences of your evil game,
But it will be too late, when you realize,
That you fell - To Temptations Angry Flame.

    A creative take on a more common emotion. Truly presents itself to the reader in a unique, well-thought-out way. The personification of a feeling sometimes doesn't work well, but you've pulled it off quite nicely. Great work!

    AMAZING, you are such a great writer. This piece, magnificent. You have the talent of a true poet. The words all collided together, creating something so new and different. The flow of this poem was like the flow of sweet water, the meaning so deep and incredible. My words could hardly explain how great you did. This is worth 6/5 probably more.
    This is, fantastic!
