Tuesday Temptation - Young Love, er Lust?

So, in preparation for today's blog, I got to thinking about some of the many different temptations I've had in my lifetime.  The one that popped into my head this morning as I drove my daughter to summer school was clean and clear, with  a little bit of naughty.

Young love, with a kick of lust on the side.

I remember one of my very first bouts of young love, my heart felt bigger on the inside somehow, more sensitive and needy.  I was sure that he was the one for me and that we would ride off on his motorbike in a happy ever after to rival even the great lovers of the past.

Today, I don't remember his name, what he looked like or if that bike was a motorbike or a motorcycle, but I do remember that feeling.  That temptation you just can't stop wanting.  The love and lust that wakes up all your youthful receptors and says, "Howdy do, doll, welcome to the teenage years!"

There's a verse in Aerosmith's song Young Lust that nails the feeling down for me.  Check it out and if you'd like check out the video up top:  Young Lust by Aerosmith (live)

Young Lust, you're dying and you're screamin' inside
Oh, you're guilty way before you've been tried
And it's crazy but you're diggin' it

Have a tempting day!


  1. Ah... young love. I had a terrible bout when I was sixteen... I DO remember his name and I thought of him strong the other day... though, I hadn't thought of him in a long time. I did all sorts 'purging' him out of my system at one point in my life.

  2. Oh man, the ones you have to purge from your system are the tough ones. It helps if they did or do at the time something really bone-headed! hehe
