My eyes incessantly craved for thine eyes,
Day after day I became trapped in thee,
My hopeless heart believed thy cloying lies,
A realm beyond thy world I did not see.

I was oblivious to the impending doom,
and surrendered myself,
Slowly and steadily over time,
to thy manipulative mind.

I was entangled in thy mesh of love,
Games thou played had a narcissistic plot,
A gaslighted victim I became, yet
My eyes incessantly craved for thine eyes.
