BLACK MAGIC

You did move Cupid's 
practiced hand
By what vile means or flip of 
wand
To strike my heart a 
poisoned blow
And bid this painful ulcer 
grow.

Like bird from tree to tree I 
flit
To skip the toil within your 
pit
And maybe find a potent cure
To life of fish before a lure.

If only you would hear my 
plea
And drain this magic out of 
me
I'd grab a trident and a 
sword
And be to you a vengeful 
lord.

They say you smuggled 
something dark
By food or drink to slave 
my heart
And force me play this 
shameful part
Of dog to its own mother 
bark.

    a story teller, a poet, a lone fighter, you fascinate me with your poetry.
