Alphabe-Thursday: T is for Temptation

temptation tickles,
terminally teases

tentacles thrust forth,
tethers heart...
thy tourniquet squeezes

transfused...tender toxins 
trickle, temper, 
tamper self will

with transient thrills

taken, entrapped,
thy tenacious grip,
though tight, enchants

tantalized, I tremble,
my testimony
to thy every glance

I blame the vicodin for this, my first thought:

That tantalizing temptation.
Three times teased.
This time?

This is difficult to do in poetry and have it came out so lyrical and profoundly beautiful. Bravo.

I have to admit, I misread "tentacles" the first time through (blush).
