Apple

Forward and backward.
Pushing and pulling away.
Won't you stay for a while, sweet lover?
Take cover within these folds of time.
Oh, these twists of fate.
I can't wait to feel them again.

Delicious and vicious, so mysterious.
I am delirious.
How can I seriously be trapped within this?
Your deadly kiss that drew me in. This sin.

You win, I surrender. 
No longer tender; I’m tempted by danger.

Now bend me and break me,
taste me, then take me
As I spill this confession
Sweet, sweet obsession.
No longer hidden, but ever forbidden.

So wrong to desire what once set me on fire
like Hell that you put me through.
How could I forgive you?
Reliving history, and now the mystery is solved.
You have been absolved of all blame
For now I indulge in the flame.
Oh, how the tables have turned.
Now I long to be burned.

Words that you've spoken have shattered and broken
but also allowed me to heal.
You've caused me to feel a brand-new sensation.
A belated invitation that I must accept.
Compelled to attend.
The end?
Never. This love is forever.

Our contract in blood;
a flood of emotions inside me.
I beg you to hide me
within these folds of time.

Here, I am safe.
Here, I am free.
Permitted to feel.

Because this is not real.
