The Bull and the Scorpion

Even if you don’t believe in astrology,
you can’t deny we were written in the stars,
and we could be read to filth.
You saw me and couldn’t wait
to get under my skin.
You sunk your claws into me
and stung me with your love.
It’s an inseparable love
doused in passion and addiction.
You have a grasp on me
and don’t wanna let go.
But we didn’t know it would be toxic.
I was too stubborn to walk away,
because I madly love you so.
When I saw red, I was ready
to charge in for a fight.
But you always scuttled away to hide,
diving your head into the sand.
So, when it was time for our story to end,
I stampeded all over your heart,
with my horns stabbing you.
