I have been tempted by many things in my life, but never have I been tempted more than by the first glimpse of that tall gumtree in my grandmother’s backyard. She told me about the fairies that lived at the top, and the gold they hid in the trunk.
She probably began to regret telling me all this after I fell from a staggering height and, luckily, broke only the arm I fell on. She certainly would have disavowed all knowledge of telling me, and punished me for telling tales to boot, if she had known my intention to continue attempting to climb that tree until I got to that gold.

i was so tempted by his cold shoulder i couldn’t help but reach out and touch it. cold marble against my flesh just like i thought and yet i still felt that strange twinge of surprise but after that came undeniable arousal. look at me i thought.

Ia m tempted to just drop everything and whisk my family off to a fantastic and fun holidays and spend time with them.
I am also tempted to just up and leave and go home because I want to spend my time with my children at home

Oh how I was tempted to get him back. But my gut told me to stop…and just wait. Karma should come around. Maybe not as soon as I would like, but oh how waiting has finally paid off. Came in a different form than I would have liked. But you know what…it’s still good enough! What goes around definitely comes back around. Remember that for next time you jackass.

This is what Satan does to those who want to be deceived. It starts with something simple and the next thing you know it is something bigger. Why is that what seems so innocent can end up being so detrimental? How do we walk away from those thing

It takes only a little convincing
that I deserve it
that I work so hard, and that no one else really understands
and that surely, this won’t hurt
and that I will be better, if only I can have

His lips… his eyes.
He was perfect.
But he couldn’t be mine.
Not with me… Not with someone like me…
Not with a man.
He smiles at me shyly, and in that split second, that moment of sheer stupidity and desire,
I’m tempted. Tempted to make him mine.

Tempted. Like Adam and Eve I guess. I don’t know I just see the word. It’s in purple and purple is a nice color. I guess I’m not supposed to think, just write. Well I’m tempted to get back with my ex I guess. Even though I have a boyfriend. I think about him all the time, especially when I talk to him. That’s a temptation. What else. Tempted to stop and think abotu what I’m writing. ‘ve been trained to come up with a thesis immediately. So I don’t know.

to be tempted is to contain the inability to resist… or something like it.

At the beginning of the day, I was tempted to go to the other end of the little world I’d discovered and see what was there. The island I had landed upon was like nothing I’d ever seen before, and as I stood there on my side of it, it occurred to me that there might be things– creatures– there that had arrived before me. Maybe, I thought, I didn’t want to go there after all.

Tempted by the void of darkness
The cryptic hollow clarity of crystal
Time stretching across horizons
As the waves flow past my edges

tempted. temptation. tempting. what meaning is behind it? this word can mean many things but I think that the thing that pops up in my head the most is temptation. tempting what? to run away from this place, maybe. quit my job and run.
By Kelly URL on 05.17.2011
“I am tempted,” I say as I hop on the plane and find myself on the other side of the country like a child who has leapt from one side of the stream to the other landing on one foot only to balance on a moist rock. I’ve made it. I’m off balance, about to fall, but I’m here.
By L on 05.17.2011
temptation is lurking around every corner i turn. sometimes i try an avoid it but i often give in. whether its the temptation of a guy or peers to do the unthinkable i cannot seem to stray away from it.
By shatel on 05.17.2011
I was tempted to go over.
To start over with this one line.
This one line that could wreck us or bring us together.
I was tempted to go after you, but I never give into my temptations.
I know what’s good for me and I know what’s not.
I know that I’m done with this road you dragged me down.

i loved to watch him. his back, his arms, the long fingers. a bead of sweat trickled down his brow and moved across his cheek. thank you he said.

I was tempted to take the cookies at the cookie factory because it looked so appetizing. I can’t believe that I just didn’t do it, but I did meet a cool hipster while in the process of thinking about taking the cookie. He told me about the novel he was writing and I personally think it sucked.

He put down the phone, confused and frustrated at himself. He was a grown man, an adult specimen of the species, surely able to control his urges primal instincts. Yet he found himself sorely tempted by her sultry tones and wicked laughter. Things wouldn’t be the same from now on.

I glance to my left, and the cake stares back. It’s thick, luscious – chocolate. It’s all of my weaknesses wrapped into one delicious piece of food.
‘Bad girl’, Ana whispers, but I ignore her, I take a step forward.
By Allison on 05.17.2011
I am tempted to tell you my heart and soul. I am tempted to tell you what I wish to show. I have never been so tempted in my life to have such compassion, such love, such feelings towards another person. I am tempted. But will hold my temptations as long as I can.
By Zj Thunderchild on 05.17.2011
Tempted by your smile
tempted by your lips
tempted by the touch
of your finger tips
Tempted by your smell
Tempted by your laugh
Tempted to move forward
and to never look back
Tempted by your words
Tempted by your lies
Tempted by the emptiness
he left in side.
Tempted to die
Tempted to bleed
Tempted to release myself
from this shell
to be eternally free
But temptation is wanting
and nothing more…
if you’d not tempted me
I’d have walked out the door
instead here I lie
in a heap on the floor
for temptation of love
is so much more…
it has the power to defeat you
in your strongest hour
to take all your energy
and drain all your power.
and though I may be happy
and bliss full at sight
just know that your
temptation has me dying
and until the day
of my last breath
know that I was tempted…
to make this last…
By lildevi URL on 05.17.2011
i was tempted when i saw that look in your eyes. you said everything i wanted to hear. stuff you wouldn’t even know about me. you’re a good guesser maybe, or good at making stories, but in that moment i didn’t think about that. i thought about how well our bodies meshed.
how silly you were.
how you made me smile over and over.
By roberta URL on 05.17.2011
to roll on the grass, to drink until i fall down, to sing in the supermarket, to drive superfast, to eat everything, to wear plaid and stripes, to dream big, to fail big.
By Dan URL on 05.17.2011
Her hands skirted my knees. I couldn’t help but keep my eyes straight ahead–I didn’t even know her. I hadn’t even really seen what she looked like yet…
But I liked it.
By Devon Hayes on 05.17.2011
it was one of those great days, where the sun is big and things feel charged, ready. i was alone, alone, and yet not. temptation led me there, to the woods, to the bridge over the water. ah! the sweetness of isolation; the freedom of nature. i lifted my hands and shouted–whooped.
-Are you tempted by me?
-Because of my fiery hair?
-Because of my fierce eyes?
-What about the other times?
-Because of your want to be desired.

today is a day for temptation
what with the gaping door in front of me
it beckoned, as it had for a while now
but i was newly aware of it on this summer day, this unusually chilly summer day
and i went in without thinking, without looking, so fast…
and she looked at me in annoyance, in amusement, and i was tempted
by what i could not be
By gwynnp on 05.17.2011
I was tempted when I saw her lucious body laying on the bed. She was absolutely gorgeous, I had no other words for how she looked. The curves of her body, the way her skin looked so milky and smooth. It was amazing. I stood entranced by her, caught in her spell.
By Courtney Hix on 05.17.2011
i eye the wine sitting in the fridge. oh how beautiful it looks in it’s beautiful curvy container; glass made from the sands of time. It calls my name, whispers it in my ear, in my dreams. The sweet liquid from the gods knows how to tempt my senses in the most secrets ways, so I am unaware. I believe that I am doing fine throughout the day, concentrated on work instead of the devil. It is not until I get home that I realize the thought that have been caressing my mind through the hours. It is not until I am staring into the barren fridge that satan takes hold, and by that point, I cant resist the temptation.

i am tempted to punch a ninja in a face and steal its pie to throw at justin bieber’s head. that would be nice, but i would have to run from the cops. and justin bieber. glulp i’m scared.
By emma on 05.17.2011
i am tempted to work harder and push myself. i am tempted to be a better person and the best version of myself. i am also tempted to indulge in life and to show more love and affection! I want to appreciate every moment in life, and i am tempted to take risks. I am tempted to LIVE
By Maria on 05.17.2011
the tempted cat
jumped to the catnip
it looked yummy
so he knocked it over
i would not open
he became upset
and scratched at it
he ate it
when i think of tempted,i think of sex. or the forbidden fruits. it just sort of happens. in today’s society, anything that is labelled “Temptuous” is forbidden. example: if i temp a guy, i show off my body or something. but then again, i could temp a little kid with candy or something…
By NekoNamii99 URL on 05.17.2011
i was tempted to eat the chocolate, and the coke, and the chips. and i did. i couldnt resist it, even though i knew it sucks for you. it’s really too bad that eating crap makes you look like crap. too bad my eating habits reflect onto my body. ugh. when is this month going to end? school needs to end.
By erin on 05.17.2011
He was tempted to do so. To touch her, to feel her under his grasp, even though he knew it would never be possible. She was too perfect, too magical. She was a ghost.
By Maria Rodz URL on 05.17.2011
What initially drew him to her was that, in the mornings, she took coffee with watermelon. Not in the coffee, obviously, but on the side. He had heard of biscuits and cookies and croissants and donuts, but never watermelon. He wasn’t attracted to her, but he was curious. He wanted to see her naked. Wanted to know if her body was that same shade of pale all over, or if, when she took off her clothes, she was almost see-through, like a thin sheet of ice coating a northern lake in March. The thought of her, of seeing her like that, was certainly tempting, but, girls like that, he thought, well, they — they get attached.
