For someone I know...

Hollow heart, empty head
and a promise soon broken…
In fury of fight
daggered words had been spoken.

These cut to the bone
to the center of pain…
For the bliss of a love
many souls have been slain.

Arms that turn up their wrists
for the vein to be severed…
No thoughts for the moment
nor costs to be measured.

A will broke in two
fractured thoughts bled away…
Just a moment when she holds
the powers that sway.

Smiling sweetly with lips
painted red with your life…
With the ring of your soul
she is bound as your wife.

Till the day you awake
under her crude attack…
Taking all that is left
time you’ll never get back.

When her true colors show
when her face is revealed…
You will know it’s the devil
with whom your love’s sealed.
