Enthralled and enticed
Enamored and lured
Knew what you were doing
So driven, so sure.

Your charm and embrace
Put me under your spell
The moment I saw you
It was clear, I could tell.

There was no one else
That could touch me the way
The way that you did
On that very first day.

It all happened so fast
No time to consider
The damage was done
The cost …cold and bitter.

The wreckage, upheaval
That was left in your wake
The pain and the torment
The tears, the heartache.

My vision obscured
By lust and desire
Overtaken, consumed
By a raging wildfire.
