Ruled by Mercury (Hg)

Mercurial appeal,
Quicksilver charms,
Making them kneel;
Inevitably disarmed.

Speeding through life,
A mother, a wife!
Untouched, unfazed,
Unmarred, unscathed.

No signs of adhesion,
No lasting impressions,
All touches tangential,
No impact substantial.

Born detached,
Ostensibly attached,
Volatile, intemperate,
Unbonded, separate!

  1. I like the staccato rhythm of this, and of course I have to wonder the inspiration. Well done.
