The Rose tempts me with its beauty

Then pricks me with its thorns

 

The Mirage lures me into a shimmering oasis

Then withers me in the desert heat

 

The Siren calls me with her alluring song

Then a whirlpool dashes me against the rocks

 

The Diamond dazzles with shiny brilliance

Then cuts me deep with its razor’s edge

 

The Serpent offers a succulent apple

Then wraps its coils around my soul

 

I am drawn to you hypnotically

Despite knowing what awaits me
