Your eyes drew me
warm and alive
with mischief
deceiving and delightful
dark with the mystery
of many buried things
for a moment
they saw me
and I was forever lost
to a free spirit
floating briefly
into my life
pausing long enough
to change all I knew
a serpent
in my thoughts
hissing your words
into my ear
you slithered away
with my sanity
seducing me
with tongue flickers
my breath
became your name
my sight
branded by your face
you....my everything
and I...your addict
stripped of everything
My soul
My love
My mind
and finally...My dignity
I disappeared
replaced by something useless
fading from your eyes
vague within mine
distorted images
within a broken mirror
tiny shards of me
embedded in your retreating belly...



 I love the time
and in between
the calm inside me
in the space
where I can breathe...

This was excellent. It drew me in and kept me.

Breathe~
Grabbed me and took me
into the looking glass.

 I love the time
