Cape siren

-You hated me because i was a player. Well hun, you created the game-

 

She was the siren

But not of the sea

 

The original siren

Calling out her coaxing song

Luring sailors to their painful deaths

 

She was the siren

Hypnotic and beautiful, then frightening

Slowly at first, then all at once

 

The sun went down, the sky cleared

And her true colors shone through

 

She manipulated you until you were under her control

Wrapped around her finger

Until she had you in her vice grips

 

You were dying

Because she was killing you

Slowly

Painfully

 

You died little by little

But didn’t notice

Every lie she spoke, you believed

Every kiss she gave, you devoured

 

Until you were left with an empty heart

And nothing but a cold soul

The life drained out of you

 

By the cape siren
