Splinters Of Temptation

There are few places I can go
a few places
that don’t throw me off track
circle back
and start again –
Waking up to a new day
surviving another day
a fresh start –
Short term memory lapse
starting all over again
all over again
Rat in a golden cage
spinning spokes
jagged edges shoot
splinters of temptation…
another direction
– over and over again
And you can’t lecture
on loves commitment
when your heart
brings you to me
…only in daydreams
always behind the scenes
– the gold band you wear
is like a noose
around your neck
always takes you back
to were you belong
where everything is right
and everything is wrong
starting all over again
all over again –
Maybe you won’t ever know
maybe you don’t need to know
because you can’t un-ring
the proverbial bell
faith or fear
keep you in check
faith and fear keep you in check
you wear a band of gold
like a noose around your neck
a noose around your neck…
