The demon of my dreams was once an angel
She was once adorned with a golden halo
Like a dreaming wonderland
It suddenly becomes a taunting never-land
The friend we once held close
Now is a thief dressed in a cloak
She once held an apple, promising love
But now she chases with hunting knives
Now I’m grasping at straws
Blaming all my stupid flaws
Was it all just a magical illusion?
Was it my gullible mind under delusion?
You’re so beautiful and so innocent
Yet so vile, scheming, and malificent
Shift-shaping serpent, singing siren
Blindfold and plug my ears ‘fore I dive in
‘Fore I dive in and die
Don’t let me fall in love with a lie.
Definition of Sirens:
In Greek mythology, the Sirens (Greek singular: Σειρήν Seirēn; Greek plural: Σειρῆνες Seirēnes) were dangerous yet beautiful creatures, portrayed as femmes fatales who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.
