The Tease

He teases
then he backs away
He pleases
but he never stays

He tempts with words
so gently moving near
then spins and turns
and leaves behind his fear

as if with sword in hand
his swift escape preplanned

For all his words
the ones unspoken
cast the spell
that leaves hearts broken

as he teases
but then backs away
and pleases
but then never stays
