(xv)

I am captivated,
ensnared by the silken tresses and the charm in the smile,
entrapped by the single finger gesture
that you enthrall me with, castled and annexed by your beauty,
the grace and the comport that befits a princess
…. you are a lovely seductress
There are always words to meld with other words,
and essays and epistles to etch on the ivory of your skin
and the tourmaline of your extremities.
You do this to me, with the ease and deftness of a practiced enchantress.
You do this to me by just being.
By being you – and none other.
