struck


attraction
crept up on me,
unready
unawares

struck a blow
heavy, fatal,
unreasonable
irrational

pierced right through
armor, caution,
defenseless
unchallenged

sent point deep,
searing hot flesh,
unresisted
irresistible

wound won't mend
but by your care,
intensive
unpent

Hi Bryan, I've been flicking through your poems. Good, unconventional stuff.
I'm interested in knowing your influences. Which poets inspire you? Are songwriters an influence?
