    It crept up on me
    I was alone, single and free
    No sweat, fast pace could care less
    Guarded, suspicious, inside a mess

    A strange looking visitor appeared
    I don’t know, haven’t seen him
    But I had no fear
    Perplexing yet familiar, far yet so near

    Slowly..I revealed myself and let him in
    My hands were shaking, heartbeat racing
    What is this..who is this..do I give in
    I can’t..not now, I might...fall in

    Too late, strike 3..the fat lady sings
    I’m encased, surrounded nowhere
    To take my plea
    I’m charged to life
    No parole..no bail in sight
    I willingly give in
    Handcuff me take me in
    To this place called…LOVE
    There is no escape no way to defend
    I submit, I give up..I..Fell..In
