She becomes the sun in his world.
Dazed, stunned, smitten. Emotions whirled.
Parhelion in mocking sky,
her beauty shines to mystify.
Moist tempting lips smile to ensnare.
Hips beckon, sway in daylight’s glare.
Obsessed he beds her day and night
primal, neurotic appetite.
His money spent, he’d been cajoled.
Drugged. Job over, she leaves him cold.
