Enchanted till the End

Enchanted till the End

​The field was dark, an enchanted place
It beckoned me, almost insisted that I change my course and enter in.
Fireflies sparkled under branches heavy with blooms that smelled like youth.
But if I took that path, to feel the damp grass under my bare feet
What would stop me from cutting through the mirror like water, where the ships make there way.
Going places I will never go.
There is no gate to issue a warning of danger—if you pass you’ll be gone forever.
Those words echoed in my head.
A split second
A romantic ending.
But forever is a long time.
