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
