A cruel mistress

She’s a cruel mistress
Who drags you from your bed
Whose charms you cannot resist
Whose chains encircle your heart

A cruel mistress
Whose voice silken soft tempts you
And forgotten lie the promises you made
Echoing gently in the long dark night

A cruel mistress
Who keeps you awake
Until the sun rises in the morn

A cruel mistress indeed
Who has erected a prison
You have no wish to escape

She must be beautiful indeed
To make you forget your dreams
And the ones who wait

Does she wield her magic
To take the pain away
To keep the wolves at bay

And how long does the spell last
Before reality creeps in
Life is for the living
Not the dying
