Soothing, velvet lined betrayal

   Deception,

     Drinks it for his ale

 

Unobserved he makes the wound

   Creating confusion,

     Gives him breathing room

 

Set to work through my dismay

   Brings death to life,

     Speeds my decay

 

What is it that you want from me?

   Others manipulated more easily,

     Why not just let me be?

 

What is it that you from me gain?

   While receiving only your

      Anger, guilt, distain

 

All the good you take from me

   Steal the truth so I can’t see

 

Beat me down so I won’t leave

   Ignore me so to you I cleave

 

Lay me on your bed of tears

   Fill me up with all your fears

 

Take till there is nothing left

   Leave me here with all the rest

 

Discard me when you’re through with me

   Take all my life to set you free

 

Left me here to die

  But you never questioned why

 

When you’re gone you feel the pain

   So you find another life to drain

 

Barely breathing and not quite whole

   Grievously injured, escaping soul

 

Trying to gain back control

   And all the life from me you stole

 

Somehow still alive

   Drank your poison but still survived

 

Stronger now but still not sure

       Lessons lived, life endured

 

Back to knock upon my door

   You like the life that from me pours

 

Begging me to let you in

   Know all the tricks, my heart to win

 

Just as sweet as you can be

   But here to suck the life from me

 

Hope that lets my eyes now see

   Try to cover with your reality

 

If I ‘m not blind, then you can’t win

   And your kind, never let in

 

So take my eyes so I can’t see

   Smother all the hope in me

 

Make it so there’s no escape

   Then easier my life to rape

 

All so you can gain control

   Drain my life to make you whole

     All consuming ravenous soul
