Black Magic Woman a poem by RestLeSsD

You told me that you loved me
We were destined to be as one.
You promised me forever,
Our new life had just begun

You wrapped your arms around me,
You clung onto my being.
You held on so very tightly
So that I wasn’t really seeing.

Then before I even realized
You took my heart & soul.
Instead of holding them softly
You left a gaping hole.

Your truths became a horror,
Just lies to justify
A love that was unholy,
A love that was meant to die.

You used me for your own devices,
Your plans had other goals.
I was just another victory
In your constant quest for souls.

You tricked me into believing
And now my soul is consumed
By this Black Magic Woman.
My heart can never be exhumed.

To find true love is such an illusive thing. When we feel we have found it we give ourselves to it entirely. What price we pay when we find that it was not what we had been lead to believe. . .
Oh, the pain.

This image was completely inspired by this song. . . It started out as a mirrored Apo flame and became this. Then this image inspired the poem.
