Entranced by Obscurity


My reflection stared back at me
A mirror of limpid azure
Its surface seemed to beckon me
Just to what I was unsure

Like a beautiful siren's call
Seemingly safe, seemingly pure
It pulled me like a puppet doll
Just to what that I was unsure

Then the water lapped at my shoes
Frosty fingers broke my stupor
Recoiling, gasping, I came to
Just to what that I was unsure

What lies beneath beauty portrayed?
What danger was weaved in the lure?
Felt it would have swept me away
Just to what that I was unsure
