A Spell Binds Me

Poem By Elia Michael

I feel as if a spell is binding me.
I find it hard to move my weary limbs.
A cord secures me, I cannot break free.
I try in vain, my head aches my head swims.
They say the evil eye does not exist,
And logic informs my mind this is so,
But bad unfortunate events insist
On taking place which fill my heart with woe.
If I believed then I would pray in earnest.
If I believed I would pray for release,
Then hymns of praise I'd sing to the Highest
To be relieved, soothed with a little peace.

A spell has bound me and holds me tight,
But I will fight this spell with all my might.

You cannot listen to Beethoven
Turned down to a paltry minimum
For he is music's Leviathan

Love's Whispers

Love's whispers gently touch my heart
And stir memories of my lost love,
One who was my integral part
When my soul soared high like a dove.


In all the languages we humans speak
There are no words to describe how I feel
Not in English nor French nor even Greek,
I have a sadness that time cannot heal.

A False Friend

I really thought you a friend.
I thought you were spun by the gods.
A golden thread to help mend
My broken heart against all odds.

Once There Was One I Loved

Once there was one I loved far back in time
When we met my body and mind would freeze
Feelings engendered in me were sublime
And my heart was kissed by love's scented breeze

If I Were Like Wizards

If I were like wizards
I'd wave my magic wand
And conjure up some words
From the back of beyond
