Consumed (working title)

I try to elude you
day after day
to escape your grasp,
Your spell. The incantation of your call

Alas, I fail.
and each day I fall
each day, I succumb
each day, you win.

You consume me.
Engulf me.

Your clutch.

Still, I fight.
The linen battle lines drawn,

I unsheathed my sword
welcome your wrath.
