Tantalizing Love

Tantalizing love, how long I’ve known you.
How often I’ve succumbed to you, but
how often I’ve resisted too -
while wanting you so badly.
I’ll never tire of you,
nor do I want to,
for you’ve been a 
part of my
have had
to learn to
control myself
when you are around.
I’m not the only one
who loves you more than I should.
You are so good when you are bad!
Oh, to breathe your scent and hold you to
my lips! Delicious food, I adore you.

    I have added this one to my favs. What works in restrictive forms like the Etheree, is that it forces the artist into problem solving. Such as how do I rewrite this line that has 12 instead of ten syllables. I am sure by now you instinctively write to form most of the time. Still I think what attempts to limit an artist forces them to be creative. In order to not let form limit us we find creative solutions.

    OO, Andrea, you are the best Etheree, poet on this site. I still remember, you inspired my first Etheree, ... :) wishing you luck, because I adore and love food, with all my heart, lips, and stomach... LOL...Love Linda

    Only my sister could write so lovingly of food. Such a tease, I was really getting into this and trying to guess who you were writing about and then it hits me, food. Love it Andrea.

    Excellent! What I love about it most is that it sings. It's a fine line we walk between poetry and message when the road isn't straight. I am choosing my words carefully in case some read comments before they read.
