Dangerous

Dangerous - the games you play
with other people’s hearts and souls;
using mind control and fantasy
to tempt and tease them to your lair;
telling them you care when all
you really care about is just yourself.

Dangerous - the games you play
with other people’s hearts and souls;
speaking in such tender words of love
while lashing out in lust that never
satisfied a need except your own,
yet you go on, convinced that you
are righteously enabled to live on.

Dangerous - the games you play
with other people’s hearts and souls;
bleeding them of all their vital energy
vampire-like, you feed on their vitality
and leave them hanging on to life
by just a thread of pure imagination
still uttering your loving incantations.

Dangerous - the games you play
with other people’s hearts and souls;
yet still you fear, for somewhere
deep inside of you, you know
it has its way of coming back to you
in spades and multitudes;
and so you wander, wondering
just when your misery will
come back too...
