You may sometimes despair, burdened by the day
But what is the anguish; share with me some of your pain
Do not for once worry; I am not far away,
So little so magical, my wonders few can explain.
As I dissolve into your blood, swiftly as I gush
Assured be you of new heights,
Tardily but surely, will you embrace the adrenaline rush
Unlimited of manifold delights.
I can envenom your very breath, or crawl stealthily beneath the skin,
My addictive charms can enthrall, painting new sights,
I unveil my powers, an arbitrary blackness gallops in,
A plunge into a dark night, exploded by a multitude of lights.
You may not believe how strong, I can make you feel,
After I discover your weak self, hidden by a veil of skin.
Sorrows, frustrations and uncertainty, all I quickly heal,
I beam with pride, as i unwind my final charming spin.
Captivated, you eventually succumb to my charms,
I run unrestricted, empowering your mind
You almost look possessed, frantically looking for me with trembling arms,
You try to find more of me, but lust has made you blind.
For you are now addicted to me,
My misty self, gushing uncontrolled through your veins,
Plunging you into a strange, imaginary sea
For there have to be risks, where lie the gains.
Your pains gradually resurface again,
Which were until now just blurred, none taken away
Look at the mirror, of what does remain?
You had been tempted by the short sweet way.
I had just promised to take you with me,
To my enchanting world far away.
But this is the reality, you have to face, don't you still see?
Alas! I just curtly smile, searching for my next prey......
