“Little one,where are you headed?” ,
You ask while shaking your head in disapproval.
I’m lost,something I’ve dreaded,
out in the world seeking approval.

The night,the snake.
Dangling the apple in my face,
One bite leading to a million mistakes.
She grabs my hand and pulls me into her enticing embrace.
“Come with me.”
She’ll whisper with her hands covered by luxurious bracelet cupped around my ear.
You call out my name,o Lord
Yet I cannot hear.
Fear leaves my body as I dance with the Night.

Battered and bruised she’ll leave me,
I cry out to YOU.
Never unheard, I cry out to you
Nobody but YOU.
