Powerless

I look for your magic in the moonlight
Listening for the secrets you will tell
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

I do not know if it is wrong or right
You leave me powerless under your spell
I look for your magic in the moonlight

Take control of me I do not wish to fight
You even mesmorize me with your smell 
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

I wish to fly on your string like a kite
Tethered to you I am secure and well
I look for your magic in the moonlight

So I travel with you into the night
Nothing compares to the stories you tell
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

You my lover with your eyes shining bright
You lifted me up whenever I fell
I look for your magic in the moonlight
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

Anne's favorite poetry form contest.
Be gentle Anne it is my first time trying this form.

Here you are, my dear poet friend, a master among the masters with such a big win on one of these particularly difficult forms! And this amazingly easy and natural flow, whatever the form, is your own and unique style that gives birth to a splendid gem! Proud of you, always! Hugs, Hanitra

Not so much a natural, I originally had it wrong and Russell Silvey helped get me on track.
