"Eclipse"

I seem to recall
At first it was you
Who pursued me
When our paths met
And I resisted you
(Or am I wrong again?)
But you charmed me
Then you courted me
You succeeded
Then we danced our little dance
And after we danced
It was I who then pursued you
But by then the music stopped
And you no longer wanted me
You resisted me
I tried to charm and court
As you once had done to me
But I failed
I faced you but your back was to me
You would never turn back to face me again
Who knew it would be only one dance?
Who could have predicted our eclipse?
