    you are flesh
    beautiful flesh, dark flesh
    tattooed flesh
    dress well, smile flash
    locked inside lust
    feelings, ink and skin

    content with
    promises and desires
    tastes and smells
    touch and passion
    you serve it
    worship it
    honor it...flesh

    dealing with you is
    dealing in flesh
    bondage ties and it’s tight grip
    emotional, turbulent
    mind altering, brain damaging
    pass me the anti-depressants
    because sin has made me crazy
    lost in your touch and your sex
    flesh

    i have chosen spirit
    i have played and gambled and lost
    now i have chosen spirit
    i turn from the flesh
    i glimpse you walking
    coat pulled tightly
    a chill in the air
    beneath your clothes
    muscles moving with taut precision

    i close my eyes to flesh
    i open my heart to spirit
    i feel the release from the grip
    the hold, the tightness...

    you tell me there is no such thing as darkness and light
    i have seen too many movies
    no, i have seen too much reality
    i choose spirit
    i choose faith
    i still see you
    but i am free

    You drove the point right on home, seeing the spirit is seeing the light. Liked this flow.
