Poetry by Jeff Green


My jailer

I heard the music playing in my mind
While every dream became a waterfall
I wondered at the magic I would find
If I should face my fears and heed the call
A silver light was lit so I could see
A perfect vision dressed in flowing veil
The magic in her words infected me
I have to hold the beauty by the tail
Her siren song has swept away my heart
I yearn for my captivity to start

Author notes

It’s a curtal Shakesperian sonnet I guess
