Young blossom

I know young blossom 
that your stare is love,
yet mine is lust

Your brown hair,
your brown eyes,
and olive skin;
oh young blossom,
what I crave
is sin

Yes young blossom,
you say that you have insight
yet I have wisdom,
you say that you have desire
yet mine is need

Young blossom,
you pack your lunch;
and I shall fast

    I have not been on the soup for almost a week to read and comment. I have enjoyed being able to read your poetry this morning. I wanted to stop by to thank you for the comments you made during my absence from the soup. I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment James. Love, Carol"

    Ah! One I haven't read. While she is packing her lunch, I am fast becoming desperate! Time to close the eyes and meditate. You have stirred, deeply, my imagination. Quick! The medics. My pacemaker is going wild. Fascinated as usual. Love, daver

    Love versus lust and you caught my attention on this write James. Thank you for making my poem on the mountains one of your fav. I love the mountains and try and get to them at least once year.

    What a wonderful write and so true. The difference between love and lust is unknown to so many!!!!!Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!!

    Some folks don't know the difference between lust and love, James, but apparently you do. The initial attraction is the "craving" you describe, though I don't see that as sinful -- just normal human response. I love the last two lines -- gave me a giggle. Enjoyed your poem, dear friend. Love, Carolyn
