Never In Love

I was never in love with you

Just caught in that fine gossamer

That you cast to capture and seize

So many of us, bathing in your charisma

Minds on vacation

I've watched you spinning pheromone silk

Unseen, enveloping

There's no tug of war

Like flies waiting for the death rattle

Sleeping, you reel us in.


My eyes opened before the meal

And on leaving shed a tear

For what might have been

Had I been the only one

Had you been the only one.
