Culpable is the evil
that held the body
in its grasp,
inconceivable became to loosen the traction
spellbound I remain !
With magical musings
 encircles a wand
hypnotizing my senses
with his beguiling charm…
I fail to figure beyond the drape
dip in enamor in fancies fake
Alas! I become a jade
losing  the fondness
as an illusive lake…
The evil vindicates
the love for him,
I turn around  and
shy away from the daze!
