The Beguiling

October 15, 2013 
The three of us shared
many things in life,
as best friends often do.
Then slithered in a serpent
who wanted us all three
I was first to be seduced
Never mentioned him to
the other two;
He was my best kept secret.
Though little did I know,
that when he left me
with steamy dreams;
He had slipped also into
their chamber's of love.
Leaving me filled with
a wanting and a longing
for more of his touch.
Most men would be
attracted to us all-
We'd been friends for so long-
We had become each other.
Never in a million years could we -
nor would we-out of loyalty
knowingly, share a lover;
Unless we had decided too.
But what next did we discover ?
Unbeknownst to us we had been
beguiled-by this charming creature
who had visited us all with his spell
This time we did not kiss and tell.
This slidian intoxicated us
and left our eyes shining
with a lust filled gleam.
The day came,when
we could no longer contain 
the excitement of our secret budreaux'
As each of us began to
describe the same man to each other,
at first we were stunned-then we started
to compared details with one another.
As the story unfolded
we began to laugh;
And vowed from then on
we would always reveal
our newest conquest.
Since we all have had a part
or him-and we three best friends -
Had never bargained for this contest.
Avowed to keep secrets no more.
The plot to share him was in flight-
to overtake him that night.
As he came through the door
we all took a bite..
Him-We devoured !
Until there was nothing left-
Except a story to tell
The Ballard of the"White Snake"
Had now become but a delicious 
metaphor in our luscious mouths.
