Your voice is a venom

Your smile is a lie

Your love it has engulfed me

I've fallen a prey to your eyes

*~~*

Your words as sweet as honey

Underneath lies deceit

Your handsome frame, it hides away

The predator within

*~~*

You're a wolf in sheep's clothing

We're no different, you and I

One night of passion, several days of pain

What other torture do you have in mind?

*~~*

I've heard of your past lovers

Would I be just like them?

I can hear them from the void

Screaming at me at wits end

*~~*

They told me of your cunning

Should I heed them or not?

Come on, baby, I'm confused

I guess not for I love you a lot

*~~*

Now here I am lying

My heart is an abyss

Your reason so holy

I simply could not resist

*~~*

Your voice is a venom

I feel the poison flowing

Eating me up with remorse

*~~*

The promise you feinted

Stabbed my heart with regret

As you led your new damsel along

*~~*

I fear for her fate

For she knows you not

And the danger you've brought to her now

*~~*

I am here in the void

My heart frantic and racing

I want to shout out

"You don't know who you're facing!"

*~~*

Your voice is a venom

Your smile is a lie

Your love that once engulfed me

I'm now dying in your eyes

*~~*

Your words laced with poison

I drink it all in

I hear your angelic voice laughing

But I know, you have the devil within

*~~**~~**~~*
