Smiling Victim

In response to the prompt given by Mona from Manic Sylph – I am the smiling victim of a crushing embrace

And when desires fails me,
for you never appear closer than a distant dream
and I somehow manage to console my heart
convincing you are nothing but a mirage,
then at once
you decide to appear from nowhere and embrace me,
crushing me in your arms
and at that moment
I am nothing but a smiling victim of your charm
