Alas, attraction lingered

As he watched as she fingered…

Her grace telephoning

Heightened his moaning

In quiet, his heart was stingered!

Especially with no feelings there,

He shouldn’t smell her hair…

Or get too close

Or be verbose

In compliments for good looks rare.

Watching makeup application

Is as good as an invitation…

Even if he pretends,

May cause him to bend

And yield to improvisation!

Watching any woman for too long

Brings up attractions strong…

Desperate I guess

To fulfill a quest,

He gravitates to love songs.

Sometimes it just gets too much,

The tempting a young one to clutch…

Or an older one too,

Ain’t no way to view

Women without feeling as much!

–Jonathan Caswell


About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
