The Hexed

Don't give me your attention
Because I'm not good at pretention.
You were never in my eyes
And I cannot offer you lies.

I can't blame you for being like that.
You have your own mind and heart.
But don't blame me for being like this.
I would never ever blow you a kiss.

Don't ask for anything from me.
I can't give you something and I'm not sorry.
I may not understand you as a being,
But know this: there's a monster in me that I'm keeping.

Little by little, you're forcing it to uncage.
Sooner or later, you'll be a victim of it's rage.
But that's not the only problem in this story.
A beauty in black called hex is smiling inside me.
