She wanders around in the dark,
Until she finds some unlit candles.
She lights them all with a spark,
Then carries them by a tiny handle.
She always lives her life unafraid,
She’s survived her own horrid past.
When she played dangerous charades,
Each day she thought was her last.
No one catches her ever unaware,
She will never give in to the pain.
But you’ll know she is always there,
Because she’s quite extraordinaire.
But she the target of an obsession,
It’s one she knows nothing about.
From a volatile past indiscretion,
Her life expectancy is in doubt.
But this is a game she cannot win,
Because he’s the master deceiver.
He attacks her from deep within,
Until she has become a believer.
One night, he will come for her,
Luring her into total seduction.
In her life she feels so assured,
It will lead her to destruction.
