Almost Enchanted

 

Almost had me.

Almost took me in.

your bight eyes

and shining smile.

Radiant to a fault,

like staring at a supernova

and surviving.

 

Who am I to resist you?

you come with all of your charms,

and I,

a simple man,

cannot dissuade

my nature.

 

Like a moth

to a flame,

I know

that I will burn

as I encounter you.

Your heat

will devour my wings

and bring me in

to the arms

of my waiting angel.

 

I was almost enchanted.

Not sure

what mechanism  in my being

exists

to resist you,

but I watched you fall away.

Still shining,

still smiling,

still tempting me

to join your gravity

on your decent,

but I declined.
