What is this insatiable hold you have over me?

There is a stirring in my soul….

From the depths of hell I have survived

On your love for me

Hoping against the slightest of hope

To be yours forever

Locked in your being, trapped

Doomed to a life of love

Little bits of you revealed over time

Catching a glimpse of freedom

Letting love loose like a beast within

I’d rather be doomed to a life loving you

Than to a life uncertain with another

To give my utmost for your pleasure

Doomed to your complete happiness

Willing to survive it

Against all the odds that strike

You are my constant craving

My best friend I treasure

I’ve already loved you a lifetime

Doomed, you are already mine.
