I was cursed with love,
But not the way you think.

I heeded the devil's words,
I got too close to the brink.

I allowed myself to be
swept over the edge,

Carried and enchanted.

I didn't realize then,
my wish had not been granted.

I was a fool,
young and brave.

I wanted to be loved,
I was my own slave.

Desire held me tighter,
than any mortal bond.

I was cursed,
I had been conned.
