A Mistress Named Heroin
By Michele N.
You said hello and soon she became your mistress
Guess it's true what they say, ignorance really is bliss.
You thought she was sweeter than honey
You couldn't see she was only out for your money
She made you lie and steal from family and friends
She tested our love time and time again
It was hard to watch, you were her slave
She was seductive, She was all you could crave
She made you hit an all-time low
And turned you into a man I didn't know
She kissed you with poison on her lips
She made you cash in all of your chips
When you had her in your arms, you couldn't let go
But her love wasn't real, it was just for show
What did she have that i couldn't give you?
What did she do that I couldn't do?
Did she make you believe you could fly?
When I told you not to even try?
She took from you everything she could take
she laughed as she watched my heart break
Her and I played a game of tug of war
To me, you were always worth fighting for
Finally, you ended the torrid affair
But she knew you'd be back, so she didn't care
I thought she was finally gone from your life
Gone, since the day I became your wife.
One day you went back to her, she knew you would
She took you away from me again, this time for good
A betrayal of depths which I'll never know
She looked pure and white as new-fallen snow
But her intentions were cruel and her soul was black
Once you follow her path, you can never go back
Many have fallen under her spell
Very few have lived to tell
You gave to her your very last breath
You gave her everything, all she gave you was death
It's over now and this pain I will endure
For we will be together again, of that I'm sure
She thought she won, thought she reached her goal
She took away your body but she can never have your soul
Now we are apart, but it's just for a little while
And when I see you again, I'll be wearing the biggest smile.
