From deep in the shadows

From deep in the shadows I see you appear
A vision of beauty, or something to fear?
Your hair floats around you, an aura of light
A light from within you makes everything bright
Are you real, can I hold you, embrace you, entrap?
Will you settle yourself like a cat on my lap.
Or are you more dangerous, a mystical power
Come here to tempt me, a poisonous flower?
Whatever your purpose, I know I am lost
I shall find all your answers, whatever the cost
