The Full Circle

The pleasantries were exchanged
That was in the first quadrant
In the second
she threw back her head and laughed
and I splintered
weak-kneed & tongue-tied.
In the third
she tucked a rogue curl
behind her ears
I auctioned my soul to longing
In the fourth
she led me into the fields
where a million fireflies danced
“Stay with me and belong to no one else’
Foolishly I whispered.
I woke up alone and disheveled
the full circle
a noose around my neck.
