Beguile Me No More

By Lydia Manx

Beguile Me No More

Stop giving me those looks from afar

The time is gone for the moment

Tears staining my heart

As brine coats my lips

The waves aren't dragging me under anymore

I no longer need

I no longer want

Kisses or touches

Beguile me no more

Let my untamed soul go

It can't be owned or possessed

Much like me

Walk away from those thoughts of yours

They really aren't reality

I am spent

Beguile me no more
