The Sweetest Temptation

Yes, it is the sweetest temptation that will cause one to sell their soul, its cravings is unquenchable, never satisfied, always longing for that which is unattainable, that which is forbidden.

Yes it was temptation that caused the fall of mankind, their desire was to taste that which peaked their curiosity, it was strange fruit, delightful to the eye and sweet to the palate, yet submerged inside was the knowledge of the world in which mankind was not yet seasoned to handle. For it was fire to the touch, yet it seemed so sweet, ah a forbidden garden.

Compare it to that of pure white chocolate, sweet and creamy, rich in texture, soothing to the mouth as it melts, yet when it is tainted with lust it’s taste becomes bitter as pure cocoa.

So why is temptation so sweet or even the thought of it? Why does it quench one’s thirst for a moment and arouse the butterflies that lie dormant in the entrails of one’s stomach? Why so desired yet so prohibited?

For one will never know until they have tasted temptation, the unfulfilled desires that it awakens, the days of distraction and nights of unfulfilled passion that keeps one yearning for more. No one knows the doors that it opens as it welcomes him in to take up residence in the pits of your soul and that as he enters, he invites more, causing one to want more. And the butterflies that were once aroused have now been transformed into something that can only be uprooted by the power of God.

Yes temptation is sweet to the eye of the beholder, yet its taste is deadly to the soul of the deceived.
