Cupid's Noose


I can still remember when your love began its reign

I recall the roses and how I loved that golden chain

Cupid shot my eyes out that day underneath the spruce

I couldn’t see your sweet valentine really was a noose

Your kisses, once addictive, now steal away my breath

Your voice used to chime like music, now I wish I was deaf

Your once enchanting embrace has become sickening

I’m a sucker for candy, your chocolates leave me choking

It took me some time to learn obsession isn’t love

When you suffocate your muse, you snuff out that tender dove

Your adoring grip is a slow chafing infection

I’d rather kick the chair out than catch your dark affection
