You seduce with eyes fair black,
You stare with smoldering soul, lit with internal fire,
What darkness is this, sucking me into lifeless mire?
This frightening apparition seeking to attack,
My soul, life, body until it cracks!
Will you not give out, leave, or tire?
You cannot win, you ruthless sire!
Phantom mirage, dark in deed, seeking to cleave, aback!
Oh, sweet darkness turns to love,
Darkness to attractive light, my heart succumbs,
Forever I am yours, trapped in your deep soul, overpowered,
Stop this madness of yours, seek elsewhere, so I can go above,
But no, never leave, I am slave to you, my spirit hums,
What have you done? Turned this rejection to a want that flowered
