Consummate Charmer

PAD Challenge day 19: For today’s prompt, write a thing poem. 

You are not much to look at
And yet, you stir in me 
Passion, allure, 
You hold a world
Of Possibility
Of flowered slope
Of hunger
Hope,
Of dreamer's paradise
How is it, you, 
Common and plain
Flirts with I-want-you-eyes 
And I, completely willing
Cannot 
Fight your straight-laced charm
But 
Like a lonely woman
I grasp your pro-offered arm
...and then we dance
A strange romance
For you follow my lead
Where I, 
A poet,
You, 
A pen
In consummate  
Rhyme,
Bleed

~Janet Martin
