A Devilish Game



Through the piercing branches, the lovers meet

Playing a game of hide and seek at night

It’s just a game, who will win, who will cheat

Blinded by the moonlight, love is their plight


Ugly, beastly love is watching above

Their bag of tricks will soon create a twist

Game of love, they were a connoisseur of

Victims of a curse, In a fog of bliss,


On the hunt, they seek Athenian blood

Creeping through the darkness, waiting to feast

Struck by love’s arrow, begins poison’s flood

The lovers now infected, the game ceased


Ashes on the ground, hearts engulfed in flame

Coursing through their veins love has won the game
