A Flash of Lust
Lust hastens in enticing your innocent heart
with grandiose plans of a lifetime to spend
A quickening of every move designed to prove its worth
with certainty you think, love must be close at hand
but lust is a disguise that only the wise can discern.
Like the sun’s brief flash sinking on the horizon, gone as fast,
or gold glimmers of summer fireflies, fading with morning light
and as all false pretenses of kindness fade from your sight,
you recognize him yet again as the prideful broken soul
longing to be whole, stealing your pure light from within.
