“This is not a case of lust you see, it’s not a matter of you versus me”…

It’s a complicated life
A complex web of white lies…
And multicoloured masks…
Used in her disguise

Looking for something,
not sure what…
Always wanting more,
never happy with what she’s got….

Turning in vicious circles
Surrounded by such dysfunction…
With a head that wasn’t straight
And a heart that had malfunctioned

Left high in the stratosphere…
All her promises disregarded
Flying away in another world
As she chose to finish what she started…

Waved the wand to ignite
Knowing as she wove the spell…
It would drive him crazy
And place him in a doomed cell…

No way through a locked door
To find a dreamscape romance
The key was broken from the start…
They never really stood a chance...

Holding on to every falling star
And burning from the sun’s full rays…
As only at night could they dance
Feeling their longing in the day…

She knew he would catch it,
and alight his soul…
Setting him down a path,
of desires and lost control…

Listening to each others words…
Together in dreams of passion
Encouragement that what they felt…
Would never go out of fashion...

Falling head over heels for her charms…
With all her dark magic...
She captured his tormented soul…
That had effects so tragic...

She couldn’t hold back from the invisible pull,
quietly crafted from within
The chain tightened around flesh and blood,
it infused and infected him…

Gathering strength from each other
Because reality bites and pales...
They fought desperately for a life…
That would never grow stale

They try and they falter
Until he finds there is no comparison
Yet all along no future can be held
She now knows this more than anyone

It’s a deadly life
A lonely one too
Black and White it’s not…
The only conclusion they drew…
