Black Widow Damsel

The suitors of your best facade,
the havoc under innocence
cloaked in lies of heaven sent,
They come with flowers wrapped to 
bear,
and you stare as,
you string their names with no care.
Yeah, you aim the strings at 
nowhere,
And show them your distress,
Just to lure them in your nest of lies.

But oh those eyes, 
How they scream out for attention,
leaving out all mention,
of seas of fallen heroes crying:
"Now she never mentions me!"

Oh no, I'm feeling low.
Your story's captivating me
My obligation's raping me.
Oh no, you're feeling low.
My honor's overtaking me
I wonder how you're breaking me.
But to you, I speak:
"I once was weak.
Go, I'm not saving you
No, I'm not saving you."

Now, you're pleading with reason...
And with the virtues you give,
You expect your will to live.
But you can tell I am bleeding...
To keep your face near,
And protect you, my dear.
Otherwise, I know you wouldn't
want to be here...

But oh those eyes, 
How they scream out for attention,
leaving out all mention,
of seas of fallen heroes crying:
"Now she never mentions me!"

Oh no, I'm feeling low.
Your story's captivating me
My obligation's raping me.
Oh no, you're feeling low.
My honor's overtaking me
I wonder how you're breaking me.
But to you, I speak:
"I once was weak.
Go, I'm not saving you
No, I'm not saving you."

As you cry, it seems like
you're dying inside,
And I try to hide,
The fact that I am too...
And you try, more than
all I can see,
To feed off of me,
But if again I should bleed,
It will not be for you...

And though the things that you say,
Can break all my ways,
I'm living the rest of my days,
teaching you....

"You get full off your lovers..."
(Go, I'm not saving you.)
"You may live off of others..."
(No, I'm not saving you.)
But I promise you one thing,
I will see you coming,
The need for your wanting, is gone.
So, with me, you die right here!
Goodbye, Love. You..
Die right here...

And all those eyes...
How they scream out for attention,
of seas of fallen heroes crying:
"Now she never mentions me..."

Oh no, I'm feeling low.
Your story's captivating me..
Oh no, you're feeling low.
My honor's overtaking me
But this time,
Not this time,
No, this time you're not breaking 
me!...

And to you, I speak:
"I once was weak.
Go, I'm not saving you.
No, I'm not saving you.
No... 
I am not saving you..."

    Wow again, this is quite a struggle. What is this power women hold over us. The things we will do for a few moments of ecstasy. I have been hooked more than once myself. I am now thankful for the love of a good woman.
