Have You Ever Been Bewitched?

Have you been bewitched

by a song that you heard once

long ago

on a radio

during a storm

when the sky turned black and the lighting cracked and opened the sky

a silver wound quickly healed?


Have you ever been bewitched

by a painting

of  The Devil or maybe  Sin

hanging in a gallery above your head at the end of the room

their eyes finding yours

and then you smiled at each other like long lost friends?


Have you ever been bewitched by a story

you read late at night

when you were all alone and feeling lost and cold

a stranger in your own skin reading your life

penned by someone else’s hand?


Have you ever been bewitched?

If you’re lucky

you have been.
