I Succumb

Dreaming disturbed
Heart arrhythmic
Breathing askew
Aimless wanderings
Of the mind
You witch, bewitcher
You've enchanted me
With your assiduous
Assault upon my being
Albeit foolishly
I let you in
With apprehension
Betwixt the passage
Of my cage of ribs
And allowed you
To stroke my heart
But only
For a little while
As it is so tender
So sensitive
So guarded
To the guiles, the
Wily wanderings
Of love.
I marvel
I fear that
The sharpness
Of cupid's
Unseen arrow
Has once more
Breached my
And i must
But, slowly
To that opium
