Poem: Spellbound

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"I Put A Spell On You" by Creedence Clearwater

poem-spellbound

"Spellbound"

She holds him
in such high regards,
but he is only a man,
a mere mortal.

He seems to hold her heart
with a mystic power,
where she can no longer
break away.

Thoughts of him play within her mind
with no chance of slumber,
until she hears
the sound of his voice.

She is under his spell,
like a bad penny
that must always return,
making him a warlock,
not a mortal.

"Spellbound" by Lacuna Coil
