It was the pursuit

Like fishing

Gently jerking the line

Keeping the bait just out of reach

Luring the fish

To come get it 

And once hooked

You reel slowly

So she feels every pull

As you let her go deeper

You take pleasure 

In the illusion of freedom

But you’re still in control

Only letting her go so far

Before reeling her In

Tangled in your lines

You take her to the edge

Before you finally let her go

Happy just to

Catch and release
