Brief resurrection

It had promised so much

when her very first touch

sent a shiver the length of his spine

he had taken the bait

hadn't nibbled of late

he ignored his own no entry sign

off he skipped ten feet tall

as he barged through the wall

nothing stands in the way of romance

and when asked how are you

he replied this is true

i don't walk over water i dance

but he's one of those guys

who can look into eyes

and immediately see past the blue

something didn't look right

she had changed overnight

what she told him he already knew

there's another named jim

who came long before him

she's a slave who is chained to his lies

as he hushed her sweet lips

and his paper heart rips

any life resurrected now dies

    This is a cleverly written piece, that flows so well. I feel for the guy, but he saw through her eyes and in to her pain. A tale I know myself..Love how he danced one water!
    Also, should "changed to his lies" be "chained"? for clarification :).
