Get Rid Of The Advertisements

A Gradual Bewitching
 

 


How many true loves can
one life sustain?
Do we really know it's love
at the time?

Away from its source we
endure the pain,
“I miss you” quotient continues
to climb.

Separation anxiety is no
phantom belief,
off your food and sleep
do you swerve.

Out of sight but not out of mind,
no relief,
real love now throws you
a reality curve?

Knowing physical attraction,
having the hots,
my runaway libido often
led me astray.

I've had one-nighters; there
have been lots,
come morning my heart chose
to walk away.

The night I met you everything
sure changed,
my own satisfaction didn't
come to the fore.

Listening and caring seemed
perfectly strange,
with the others I was busy
scheming for more.

The touch of your hand raised
hairs on my neck,
the sound of your voice just
melted my knees.

My usual bravado became a
simpering wreck,
you could've bent me to any shape
that you pleased.

Having admired you from afar didn't
quite ready me
for the jolt of love our close
encounter bestowed.

From that moment my heart wasn't
footloose or free,
it had been swamped and completely
undertowed.

If only I had known the silent colors
of your heart,
were you wobbly kneed and tongue tied
in my presence?

I knew for sure that you were the
creation of angel art,
my fickle heart sought a suitor's
chance to recompense.

Love, when it’s wielded with such
fervor and charm,
blazes a path directly to where you've
hidden your switch.

You find you’re offering your life, as you
offer your arm,
to this beguiling practitioner who now
has you bewitched.
