You were not welcome when you knocked,
I daren’t believe in you.
I turned away and barred the door
but deep within, I knew…
Unwelcome though your drumming was,
demanding, you compelled.
Evasion lost, persuasion won.
By need, I was bespelled.
You would not leave or be ignored,
your pounding made me ache.
I heard, my heart was in accord.
I let you in. Mistake.
