Once upon an autumn night
While I hid in sheer fright
came the call of siren sweet
making my heart skip a beat.
The sound of steps as light as rain
only enhanced my dear heart's pain
quickening the rhythm of my breath
and enhancing my mind's wrath.
The sound of her entrance made me look
and left me as a fish caught on her hook.
Just that one quick glance
speared me as if by a lance.
As I stood entranced
she quickly closed the distance
to stand in front of me
and become the only thing I see.
"I love you like the autumn mist
and sorely have you been missed"
is what I wished to utter,
but when tried I only stuttered.
She firmly took my hand in hers
as icy as if metal spurs
and led me out into the night
which only increased my plight.
I remember how we used to sit
fitting together like we were knit
and a tear I left unshed
just as feelings I left unsaid.
