My Name Is Enticement

In the Middle East, far south of Sweden,                                                                                                                   I was discovered in the Garden of Eden

I have a bold purpose and a clever plan, and I'm not shy
I have deadly tools that take people low while making them high

A by-product of a fallen angel, I'm neither nice nor do I try to be
I'm at my best when stricking like a snake and stinging like a bee

I am a state of ease and ready to please, so beautiful and picture perfect                                                            I welcome young and old alike, with plenty of pleasure for the best effect

I am known for seeking out and engaging  the forbidden, which never ends well. Blinded, people seldom see me coming; so deaf, they can't hear the bell

Each generation tries to sheild the other from 'my hard to resist temptations;
often forgetting that it also failed to master and overcome its own frustrations

I comfort and soothe, causing pleasantries like bathing in sunshine and  blue sky. I am mesmerizing and addicting, creating falsehood until I take wings and 

fly. Things forbidden feel so real initially, with lots of thrills; but they never come to stay. Ceasing to pray, people are captured and arrested; and like 

children, they like to play. Few would dare to admit that I am their skeleton in the closet, their secret admirer. I stir and provoke their emotions, release their 

hidden passions, and light their fire. People are graciously embraced with care; and they are held closely until they cry. Quite often, I will behave like 

mirages, and appear with a most deceitful lie.  I may have the look and the feel of a doll, play like a child, but I am no toy. From olden days, I am rooted 

in rebellion and commissioned to destroy. I have a plan to engage,                 and a purpose to pursue.  I am neither an allusion nor an accident.

I possess neither good will nor good intention; and to avoid me,
good people will need more than an ouch of prevention                                                                              

I am pretentious, ancient, and also modern;                                                                             masterly alluring, my name is *Enticement.
