Love’s Hostage (Glamour Me)

Seb Janaik

– PART 1 –

A silent storm seen brewing deep in ominous clouds
Nefarious eyes seeking a hostage, almost found
by it’s maddening drive lies no limits
knows no bounds
relentlessly they hound

Artemis unleashed, legs draped over a crescent moon
she softly wields her weapon and hums a muted tune

Tilts her head slightly
while sharpingly
aims
bow and arrow
it’s reflection as flames
gleaming from mirror moonlit glow
It’s target lies below

Through forest & through trees
above hills and tall grasses
an arrow encounters a pure heart
and falls to knee as it passes

A witch crouches down, places her hands into prayer
whispering haunting curses, binding her swears
and as it’s being chanted
a maddening drive gets planted

As they lay with a cold hand under a head slowly raised,
weary Eyes are aligned through a dense haze
glazed stare of a seer has been embed
waiting for the spell to thoroughly spread

A hand grips onto leverage as needle brisk air is inhaled
Dark Gods watch as her humanity goes pale

serenity fully drained, replaced with
A burning current running through her viens

This is part one in series inspired by heartbreak and longing, with some of the same themes presented in the show Vampire Diaries. Lovers understand what it’s like to be struck with cupid’s arrow, a feeling so intense that being around the person of the directed affection is painful. It’s a maddening drive, at times feeling like a curse. Falling in love is one thing, but as we will learn in this series the feelings aren’t mutual, and of malicious origins.

Tell me, how has your unrequited love fared?
Are you in love right now?
Have you felt the pain of having an uncontrollable attraction for someone?
