The Tempting Lure

The morning air unlocks the gloom
While whimsical strings conjure a tune

Slight of hand
As he began


What trickery is this that arises?
As despair steals in and surprises


Alas a shattered broken spell
As once, a humbled man did tell


Now lost in ego
As darkness steels light
Pain incensed startled fright


Daylights’ offer reveals the absurd
For darkness succeeds the tempting lure
