Potent Poison


Once again you failed,
At helping me mutilate my soul
You made me believe in a vile love
That I will never have.
Once again you accomplished
An irreparable decadence,
Of my own damnation
But yet somehow I feel a somber trance
And it's taking over my dreams
It's haunting my nightmares
And I never want to let you go
Your such a potent poison
An emotionless wraith,
Who gives no clear answers
Of life or death
And you're taking over me
You're going to be my precious end,
But I don't mind death.
