A golden goblet
I held it in my hands
Cast against the sunlight
Your sight blinded me.

Could any other be as fair?
My heart did care,
But my eyes dared not stare.
I was stunned by the glare,

Drowning in Oceans of Dreams
Your charms seduced me, or did they?

I paid you compliments, but you did not reciprocate.
I told you I love the design of your coat and your boots.
I told you you looked elegant.
I told you, you were one of the most handsome men I have encountered.

You spoke so eloquently.
You responded with a smirk.
These compliments were sincere.
I did not expect you to reciprocate, but not once did you pay me a compliment.

Wrapped in red ribbons, you sealed my fate.
I was open. You were closed
Your mind closed at first sight.

I felt the fright in your stare.
I questioned myself and said okay, maybe this is my projection.
I was prepared to do the work.
