Wanna Play?

Toril "Wanna Play"
You beckon
I come
Yes, I know better
and still, I come
You are a thief
a deceiver
You will always hurt me
and still, I come
When you look at me
with those pleading eyes
and that beguiling smile
I can't resist
Time and time again
I come
Trusting your words
more than my own knowledge
Such foolishness!
Still, I come
By the time I see
the glint in your eyes
it is too late
Your alabaster teeth flash and
encircle my neck
like a string of pearls.

Oh dear! That is a very deadly string of pearls-- this feels very metaphoric--very clever. Thanks Lola. K. Manicddaily

Such a perfect ending to a clever metaphoric write.
How easily we are enticed...

Somehow I don't think this is about a 'real' fox...

Hi LM, I sent you an email regarding NaPoWriMo. Just letting you know so it doesn't get lost in spam mail.

What the metaphor... and I wonder - did "he" give you those pearls. Sorry it took so long to visit and comment. Thanks for participating in this challenge.
