So you say it but do you mean it? You want to be my one and only someone special, part of my

being, sharer of my soul, gatherer of my essence? Then take my hand but know of what your path is

before you do, for I am tainted by my self-deceit, hated for my sometimes callous ways, loved for

many reasons, emotional baggage you could only imagine carrying with you as you glance my way.

For you see I hold dear for you many things you desire yet many things that repel you. I am the

tempting underlying succubus that you so dread. Think long before you take the hand before you as

your love may not see you through the hell my life will drag you into. For though my love for you

may grow with every passing day, my need to protect you from myself would make me push you

away.
