Lust, you speak of lust? 

of this I must 

share that just 

a moment ago I trust 

that I share with another 

the purpose not to smother 


Discipline and tame lust 

allow it to dry to rust 

speak to it with surety 

permit not the road from purity 

conceal its capturing desire 

quench its hurtful fire 

Lay low from its conspire 

Equal not yourself to admire 


Invite and entertain discipline 

Play not, nor mingle with stolen 

the vows of the sacred hold firm 

the ravages of lust agree to burn 

Keep your sight narrow for your woman 

Keep your desires nigh to her bosom 


Ignite the passion of loves fervor 

Woo your lady in her murmur 

Dress her with your loving words 

Entice her with sensual thirds 

She is your queen to dress and undress 

In her let longings of love express 


Take her to journeys never traveled 

Compose for her pleasures never rivalled 

Create her a man of wonderment 

Design love, refuse lusts empowerment 

Hold her skin to skin in loves abode 

Touch her to assure her you’re home 


Sensuality taste from her cavern 

Let your feed be her to govern 

Drink her embraces with contentment 

Only entertain lust for resentment 


Be strong, be of character, be warned 

Lust will only lead to deadly scorn
