In His Spell (Rannaicheaacht Ghairid)

In his spell,
I had decided to tell
that I been sexing this man,
held her hand, soaked in his smell.

Did repent,
explaining how I had spent
my weekends with this stranger,
her anger at my consent.

I withstand,
repeating that first night stand
will it ruin what we share
did I care? Its out my hand.
