In a haze of smoke, she appeared
unexpectedly, like a thief in the night,
beautiful, exotic and mysterious.
She came towards me as in a dream.
I stood there, helpless, unable to resist.
I wanted to run away but I couldn’t move.
Closer she came, her thick dark hair
flowing about her exquisite face.
I reach out to touch her but she’s gone.
I wake up to an dark and empty room.
I’m alone in bed, drenched in sweat,
my heart pounding, yearning for her–
the woman who has robbed me of my
sleep, my mind and my heart.
