#JusJoJan 5/17 – Temptation

tempted
from the moment she saw it
to lay down her heart
her soul
her body
for the man with the riches
to purchase
the ice to place
upon her finger fair.
glitter
reflecting from the hearth
the fire
the warmth
the blessing of a stone-cold heart
to steel
the expense of her soul
against the price of hollow existence.
