Word Vomit: Weak Flesh, Faithful Heart

by | Nov 15, 2017

The mind and spirit are strong with love

The body weak with lust

Heart resisting temptation

The flesh craving sinful touch


Yearning for that connection,

yet fearing that imprinting glance

The body shudders, mind imagines;

Carnal pleasures to be had


Heart says no, he’s not for you

Body says come closer

Both battle; wage war,

for what they cannot have


Love wins the war this time;

Forces body to await her lover’s return
