Like Caesar - Poem by Suzanne Hayasaki
He walks like Caesar in the sun
His shoulders squared, his back erect.
His eyes look out on battles won
Their raw ambition yet unchecked.
And I within his orbit having come
Am powerless to myself protect.
One glance from him, one inviting grin
And all my resistance fades away.
His voice over me some enchantment spins
And I fall beneath his potent sway.
The spell is cast, the dance begins
I offer myself up as his willing prey.
And once within his vice-like grip
I abandon all my hopes of love.
As he both my gown and honor strips
I feel the freedom of a dove.
At last released from self-censorship
I shed the reputation I was never worthy of.
