I was being squelched
by the lovely words you spoke,
and the tightness of your fingers
Encased around mine.
I was chained
to you beautiful lies,
and your glistening eyes.
I was entangled
in the obsession of someone I could trust,
a person I could take my chances with; win or bust.
I was trapped
by the enchantment of your presence,
I realize now that time is of the essence.
and I was then
something I will never be again,
