You have a way of keeping me ...

You keep me lost within a trance
Your spell mesmerizes my mind.
Captivated - I have no control
I'm kept spellbound and hypnotized.

Somehow I've become so stricken
Feeling habitually confused.
Bound to my endless addiction
Can't seem to break away from you.

You keep me coming back for more
I'm your addict and need my fix.
The craving - so intense and pure
There's just no escaping it

This undying need and longing
have become too much to bear.
Your mind captivates my heart
leaving me defenseless and impaired.

I'm destined to be your captive
I've no desire to escape.
Forever a prisoner of your spell
I accept you to be my fate.

You have a way of keeping me ...

Yes, I know this feeling well and you described it all too well, my friend, great writing. I felt the lovesickness that you were playing out in your delicate words.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
