I lay on the sheets, wrapped in her warmth I stare at the walls and ponder my oath She whispers sweet nothings to soothe my aching heart Her arms enclose around me to prohibit my depart “Where were you all along?” I ask She hid her smirk behind her mask “I was always present, love Watching you from high above.” When things went wrong, she’d help me cope She would tell me there’s still hope And in her arms I shed my tears She fought away my dreadful fears At last, her act came to an end I realized she was no friend Horrified, I tried to flee But she had taken over me She told me there was no way out “You thought you would go? Out and about? No, my dear. A price you will pay Before I let you go away.” And so, my friends, I warn you now Do not succumb, do not allow The darkness to obtain your core. The price is death. That I ensure.

Trudging on a golden road to hell. Bad things appear good in the beginning. They are attractive and fun but with undesired sweet poison I would say
