You’re a Very Tempting Man-Dori Owen

You’re a very tempting man

but I think I’m going to

turn you down this time

 

You see my heart is

far away with someone

who doesn’t

even know it’s there

 

I suppose that gives us

a commonality of sorts

two souls empty-handed

in things of love

 

It would be so easy

to say yes

I understand

your compelling why not

argument completely

 

But you are not me

the morning after

when my fingers

smell of you and

my heart aches for him

 

It’s just not worth

my time

my pretense

my disgust

my vow to say no next time

 

But you’re a very tempting man

and I think I’m going to

turn you down this time
