“The threshold”


The threshold

A Poem by Coyote Poetry

We can be given motivation by the words of great poets. Thank you Rene Salinas for loaning me a verse.

“The threshold, wide and the appearance inviting.
The ill embrace of uncertainty daunting.
The path which leads to destruction,
So enticing, that many are invited.”

Quote by Rene Salinas

Threshold

“The threshold, wide and the appearance inviting.
The ill embrace of uncertainty daunting.
The path which leads to destruction,
So enticing, that many are invited.”

I knew the ending before the first kiss or act.
Wild blue eyes, long white Summer dress and perfect young body.
Wasn’t to be held for eternity.

She appeased me with questions and I felt the need to betray true love
for dances in the darkness of false need. She was reckless and dangerous. Offering me shelter without demand.
Embrace with no real payment.

I wanted her. I wanted to remove her Summer dress and trace her body
like an artist seeking hidden places and faces rarely seen.

Her lustful glances and her charm make me wish to kiss her sun-kissed skin and
fall in the storm of temperamental  heart. I knew when you enter into a threshold
of an untamed storm. The enticement will make you fall completely.

Forgetting what is true and real.
Treason is love cannot be forgotten and
what is left behind will leave you wanting for things lost and never to be found.

Fruitless love will leave you alone. Burning fires will burn out and wild in heart.
They will move on.
The temptation of new threshold can be tempting?
Old man wisdom. Is the dance worth the payment?
