Enchantress of Dreams

 

Linda Ruzicka

 

 

The man slumps exhausted,
head dropped on the table
moans escape his sleep
papers in tangled disarray
wondrous lyrics, ink barely dry

Sibilant whispers in his ear
silent to all others
entice, entreat and cajole
urging him ceaselessly onward
his Enchantress of Dreams

Radiantly beautiful to her lover,
her arms wind around him
seduced by her powerful charms
pushed beyond all endurance
he is left with unbearable longing

She will ever inspire genius
the depth of emotion she evokes
within the man she takes claim,
a dangerous and lethal combination
as she lays waste to his body and soul
