The Maelstrom in my heart

Written by: Adefemi Adejuwon

Unsure I stand,
Of how to feel,
Distraught within, without,
Although I planned,
To be as steel,
I'm soft without a doubt,
A 'she' has come,
To bend my mind,
And claim my smitten soul,
Stole my freedom,
And so I find,
I'm robbed of self-control,
O siren maid,
Such strong dark spells,
You have cast on my heart,
A heart that has strayed,
From where it dwells,
Will surely fall apart,
Where can I go?
What can I do?
When will this madness end?
If I feel so,
Then so must you,
Or do you just pretend?
You give me pain,
But take my peace,
A poor exchange for pleasure,
I struggle in vain,
To earn your kiss,
A fool beguiled by treasure.
