Entranced

All night, I sat by the calm sea,

a place untouched by pain or ecstasy,

moonlit with the cool charm of nothingness.

At dawn, I saw you,

warm and sweet.

Entranced, I took wings.

As you drew closer, I pushed

to close the miles between.

My wings ached.

Your bright halo

burnt through my sight

but losing your light scared me.

Searing heat burnt me

but I was a marionette on strings.

Pain unknown assaulted me.

Reason told me to turn back.

Still, ecstatic to reach you,

I inched forward

until I was but ashes…

that were far beneath you…
