Emerald Eyes (Poetry)

Emerald eyes, you turned my blue skies
To black, the ground to scarlet red
Cut my heartstrings, left me for dead
Twice fooled by your vile disguise

Emerald eyes, you became my vice
Squeezing my skull, crushing my mind
Used to say you were such a find
Who knew attraction carried this price

In a city so far away
Your emerald eyes still beckon me
To come your way, join your mis’ry
But your game I’ll no longer play
