The Antidote

You murdered me with your eyes
A fog of indifference has lifted
As blue as the naked skies
The perception of self has shifted
A witness to transformation
An arbiter of powerful change
An undeniable confirmation
You’re attracted to the strange

Your surge of electricity
Has resurrected the dead
Harmonious synchronicity
This desire must be fed
Foreign emotions released
For the first time in years
Self-hatred has ceased
I’m no longer in arrears

Humbled by your strokes
I’m firmly in your clutches
There’s no need to coax
I succumb to your touches
Reduced to a hush
In the glow of detente
I still feel the rush
Oh, how your eyes do haunt

The breath of conquest
So confidently heaved
Incredibly impressed
With what you’ve achieved
The antidote to my disease
You could write a book
As seductive as the breeze
I was killed with one look
