Caught in a Spell

Caught in a spell.
Moon magic binding
darkness to a blinding
shaft of light.
She was the night.
He grabbed her heart.
Just then her world
began to fall apart.

Caught in a spell.
She could not see
the darkness caught
within the trees.
Where sunlight used to glisten
through the endless waving leaves.
He left her there.
Alone and unprotected.

Caught in a spell.
A net. A maze.
Wandering
while feeling crazed.
Through fields where
long grasses swayed.
She could not think.
She dared not pray.
Just at the peak
of every dying day.

Caught in a spell.
Moon magic binding
darkness to a blinding
shaft of light.
Heart bleeding out,
with arms outstretched,
she simply flew away.
On golden wings
in dragon's dreams
into another day...
