Death by Love

A dagger driven into my heart by my lover
The truth hurts but lies hurt more

Love came in disguise
I was fooled by the guise

We loved like it was a fairy-tale
Drunk on the elixir of perfect life

Deceived by euphoria in utopia
A seemingly perfect dream crashed

Oh! I loved that love
Always whispering sweet nothings

Those refreshing striking glances were petrifying
My body has been rendered numb

Those sweet words were sweet bombs
My ears have been deafened

That kiss was poisonous
It's killing me slowly

That hug was electrocuting
It has drained my strength

I was caressed by bladed-fingers
There are scars all over my body

I loved a dangerous lethal love
Now, I've been sentenced to Death by Love
