poetry by j matthew waters

she put a spell on me

she put a spell on me
made me change my mind in mid-thought
as if I hadn’t missed a beat

after so many years of leading a solitary life
I admitted I desired to see the world
and she agreed I should go
for there was little left for me to do here
except keeping pace and time

I wasn’t surprised she sent me packing
no questions asked
knowing full well she’d be with me
every step of the way
