She trembled, wary of the fall
when he pinned her against the wall
while looking deep into her eyes
His voice was a beckoning call
easing, soothing the stormy squall
that was hidden behind her eyes
There was no reason for her to stall
so, she allowed herself to fall
finding love deep in his dark eyes
