A Fickle Mistress

Poetry...
She lures us in,
As if with her beguiling grin
She captures hearts inclined to sin

Poetry...
That lady fair
Displays a most defiant glare
When we attempt to leave her lair

Poetry...
Makes us drunk with glee
But, she will never set us free
From that which we desire, but can never be

Poetry...
Entices all
With her soul she does call
To those that she may soon enthral

Poetry...
That fickle mistress
Causes hearts and souls distress
Because she fills that need...that humans do possess

Excellent composition! Please read 'Definition Of Poet.'
A wonderfully true and beautiful poem Dee. A well-deserved ten for sure. Keep em coming!
No often does a poet write so accurately of Erato, that muse of poetry, which so affects the soul of every poet around the world, Dee. Your fine poem is beautifully written and expressed, and written in a fairly terse style that is quite reader friendly. You have tied these related verses together quite wonderfully. Carl.
