Dearest love of mine and most amazing muse,

Painful and so kind; I think I’m falling out of love with you.

Unforgettable desire you engraved throughout my skin,

You lured me with your fire into a mesmerizing sin.

The song is that charisma your eyes just sang to me,

Beautiful the siren I saw explicitly.

That drew me into falling and then into distress,

Making me surrender and settling for less.

But now I feel the difference; I think that I have tired,

My heart no longer yearns to your love acquire.

My temptation has derailed from the magnet of your lips,

I think my tears prevailed the magic of your fingertips.

Sorry that it took me long to say the words I hid,

Every day I loved you more because of everything you did.

Today; it’s not so hard to refrain from your embrace,

I’ve come this far and I think you may have been replaced.

If that’s the case, I must say it’s for the best,

I did try getting you but there was no success.

Getting far away from you is simple and you know that it is true,

The task that is invincible is; who makes me feel like you?

You malevolent leviathan who ate my strength away,

The music of this ecstasy doesn’t leave me words to say.

Fragile are my instincts when we are just feet apart,

But truly I’ve been poisoning your love out of my heart.

Deadly is your rhythm but I’ll confess what’s really true,

The day another skin I crave I’ll be completely over you.

And I think that day has come,

Another siren already sung.
