Seduction of the Mind
I could throw caution to the wind and compromise my virtue,
Just seduce you here and now if I had the mind to.
Catch your gaze and hold it ever so demurely,
Curve my mouth into a smile to embrace that gaze securely.
Float across the room to you in a mysterious cloud of smoke,
Stop just short of touching you in a manner to provoke.
Brush my fingers through your hair, stroking light and airily,
And let them fall upon your cheek to linger momentarily.
Edge a little closer and look deep into your eyes.
Press my body gently into yours and feel the heat arise,
Take your face into my hands and bring it close to mine,
Brush my lips across your mouth in a blurry taste of wine.
Feel our bodies move in the most primitive of dances,
Melt slow and steady in the most mystical of trances.
Yes I could give it all to you and take everything you’ve got;
If I had a mind to I could love you, but I suppose I’d better not.
