Like a high priestess of old,

I come to worship at your shrine

Bare chested, nipples rouged and erect,

Eyes smoldering, arms outstretched

Bearing offerings

Thinking to capture your soul,

I form each letter

With reverence and awe,

The force is palpable

I murmur my incantation

 With charcoal , I invoke your name

Spellbound: Welcome
