The Bitter Version

This sometimes cruel reality I am forced to live
Another participant in this play I would happily give

The fault is no ones; nothing could change
It is their right to choose a shackled cage

My defenses are instant, careful not to stray
Before these temptations I long to submissively lay

Oh, demon, please come conquer my soul
Be damned to those who think me a fool

Entrance is sweet, like a gentle man's caress
You slowly take hold of my organs, flood, and flesh

Tears escape from the vessel once numb
For the vast life I could barely overcome

A vacant smile reflects the depths of my possession
Never to regret my true last decision

Sudden awareness breaks the form of my illusion
Silent despair intertwines my torture and confusion
