bow and arrow

with a bow and arrow
only you can see
you pierced my heart
and brought me down to my knees

with a look that you give
meant only for me
and a voice like honey
that’s nectar to the lonely

no longer afraid
i step into your darkness
feel the sting of your caress
as i lose myself in the stillness

our desires engulfing us
like moths drawn to a flame
too late to realize
the price of love’s game
