Stalemate In Love

From the corner of her eyes, 
between the shades of her nervous smiles, 
peeking from the curtain in the corridor, 
holding her breathe to conjure the stealth, 
through her gleeful eyes
she consumed his presence ,
into her desirous heart 
and assumed no one took noticed 
of her deviant mind thoughts, 

Little did she know 
her fragrance deceived her 
making him covetous, 
and his screaming eyes 
spotted her tryst visage 
failing to hide behind the drape 
and unknown to her, 
she spread an occult’s spell 
where both were stalemate 
in some vicious love
