Becalmed, Bewitched, Bedazzled

By Nick Williams

Across the road,
I watched as you window shopped, bag in hand
And as people and cars rushed past, I stood motionless 
as a boat
becalmed... 

And at that party,
there was a strange aura that hovered around you,
but maybe it was just you, the cheap wine, and me
feeling 
bedazzled...

And for weeks after that,
my every waking thought (when my mind was clear enough to think)
has been of you, leaving me 
spellbound, 
bewitched...

And now here we are,
nervous, on show and in clothes we'll never wear again, 
and I'm still staring at you,
totally 
besotted.
