Midas Touch

~Do Not Trust a Word, He Says~

He speaks of sunken treasures the way no other man 
The map of his essence is drawn in the stars 
His smile of gold ride out the waves 
The moon is pulled by the prestige of his masculine art 
With great pleasure, your heart now sits in a glass case 

His love lavishes making every moment memorable
This gentleman cultivates you from every direction 
Your blood rises to his flirtatious ego 
His eyes, manipulate you, invade every dream, 
Endless lust, pulled by the enigma of dragon dust wind 
Falling flowers of forgetfulness, when lost in his touch 
He endures, he breathes in ways you can't resist 

Uttered words easily wrap around your heart 
In a game of trust, his lips persuade another kiss 
Like a syndrome, you babble and drool ---- stepping all over yourself 
You are naught more than a fool in love, 
Trusting and believing every golden word spoken from his lip

Wow..This is an anthem that should be sung loudly and proudly so others may not be tempted. The vibrancy of your words sets an amazing tone, this is excellent writing and a most pleasurable read. :-) blessings, lynn

Hi Linda, the real man needs not to use the art of seduction. Your write sings of such a seduction. Your words take us on such a journey as only you can. Words can sing into the heart so easily and yours do. You have your own style of simplistic truth in your writes. This is an excellent write and it is deserving of a seven and put into my faves. Love Vlad.

It's best to stay away from this guy, that's for sure. You explain in great detail why... he is a wolf in sheep's clothing, a drain on your psyche, and most likel your pocket book! Well done Linda!! Best wishes, Keith

Hi Linda Love this... it reminds me of the seduction that certain men perfect as we fall prey to their words and innuendo's. I believe we reside in the same State of TX now. Just recently relocated to Dallas from South Africa ~~x~~

It may be about the "midas touch", but it reads like hot buttered rum over velvity smores...You have poured a juicy bit of imagery onto your's magic.
