The poem is below.



When I first met you it was like thunder 
your eyes into mine 
the rain pouring down all over us
You caught me in your web of my youth
But now I know the wicked truth
I stand next to you 
It's much to late so what's the use in fighting
what is there for me to gain out in this rain
you taken the light out of my life 
You peeled my mind like an onion 
one day you'll turn up to begin something 
And find there's nothing left but innuendo
beside you others fade away but I stand straight
I am brave walking the line of all time
you have me hypnotized
you can see it in my eyes 
but that will be all you can see 
you still try to read my eyes of another kind 
but that will be something you could never take from me
This is much more than just a game you play
this is the life of truth or dare with fear of you 
These certain rules become a way of living 
this is the way to walk into the night without the light
night after night I try to prove my love 
that I can resist you 
but you have a spell on me 
you had tied me up inside your lies and voodoo
You have designed your manipulations 
you cast your spell all over the land 
all over the sea that cry's for me 
You made me the Queen of sensuality
You shelter me into your darkness
you taken me down into weakness of your lies 
That's not to say it doesn't please me sometimes
now this may come as no surprise
but you have issue this I can see 
no one has to tell me 
But I'm content to compromise
until the day you realize I could never truly love you 
I have been manipulated by you 
without this spell you couldn't keep me down.
