I enter the room; she stares at me.
She entices, beckons, and pleads.
I turn away, trying not to see.
But, I know she will not let me be.

I pass by her, escaping, this time.
Many other matters need my mind today.
Oh, for just one day of peace sublime.
If I pass again, her call will chime.

Her beauty gleams in my mind.
I can't foeget her, although I oft try.
I'll never desert her, or be unkind.
I'll hurry to return to this tie that binds.

When did this start? Long ago, I think,
This love that calls me every hour.
I was so young when I first felt the link,
To this blank white page waiting to marry my ink.

Today, I give in to her lure so bright.
But, tomorrow, I'll go to the store.
I'll ahop for paper with all my might,
Pink, blue, green, anything but white!

This is cool. I was so worried you were facing some floozy. LOL. Still I know the allure of the written page over higher priorities.

Not sure why the word is seductress is spelled the way you have it. I can see where you were going with this but it still needs a little work.

I totally understand the calling of the white page. It has been placed on hold at my house for too long. So now I just give in to it. Glad you did too. I enjoyed reading this.

What a clever way to write about white. Ah! the pull of that white piece of paper. How it pulls you like a magnet and entices you to put pen to paper. Thank you for sharing.
