Forced into Love

Come hither she said with a wry smile across her lips, standing in shock as if being mocked by a bird in a tree. Where intrigue once stood now the realization of flight and she barred her door in horror and fright. Musn't let him leave or her chance will be gone forever. She must do evil in order to free her scarlet letter. He almost yelled for help and she was ghastly ablaze, with fire in her heart to solve her lovers maze. She dragged him feverishly to the alter of her back and retreat he tried but strength he did lack. Now locked into position the agony of defeat, he was losing this battle to the deceptively sweet. She made a promise that all would be fine yet, she knew not herself what future crossed that line. In selfish arrogance she unvested all armor, for she knew what she was doing, she was a charmer. NO! exclaimed he for it was too early. She was manipulative and charged him to be girly. For every reason not, she whispers a reason for, all she wants to hear him say is more more more. It didn't happen quite as she intended. His integrity and respect, were forever, offended. Forced into love is not a whim or delight, for it still awakes him late at night. Everyone makes mistakes if only she asked permission, yet "no" was only spoken, and never an admission. She received the grief she deserved with fire in her eyes, because not once, ever, did she think to apologize.
