A Love Spell
Hypnotized by moonlit tides, so soft yet deep,
he speaks to me. A twilight gaze casts its fateful spell.
Every word surrendered to his fantasy, I keep
to toss upon midnight's shore like the roiling shells.
I inhale ocean's breath and body, waves of magic he foretells.
Beneath a stroke of endless sky, innocent days
fall prey to darkness, enchanted by love's disguise.
His smile tempts the waning moon as castles crumble to decay.
And I...I am lost to myself. I, who once was wise.
Helpless in his arms, I've become one of his lies.
