This tanka is inspired by the two main characters in my novel – The Curse of Time Book 1 Bloodstone, Amelina the main protagonist and the mysterious, unfathomable Ryder….
For time I used tempo and for charm bewitched.
A heartbeat’s tempo,
Bewitched am I, misled too,
Shadows invade me,
I struggle to break your spell,
I daren’t guess who you are.
