Poisoned Blood

Her spell is cast and surges through my blood
The ebb and flow of life within my veins
It cannot change the emotional flood
That leaves my soul lost in an angel’s chains
A heavenly place yet it burns of hell
Of pain and pleasure in melodic song
Nothing to say with no story to tell
Only the silence that goes on too long
With eyes of red from the crying too hard
From trying too hard to make it all work
Perhaps, instead, let fate play a new card
Before the mind goes totally berserk
It will not change the simple fact hereof
My veins are poisoned by the kiss of love
