I survive everything meant to destroy me,
Yet, you’re the one I couldn’t avoid.
Like a victim, ailing from COVID-19
I have quarantine this pain,
Isolating all these disoriented emotions.
Like David vs Goliath,
I had to fight your giant of a love;
Though it appears I have won this battle,
It turns out I have lost the war.
You sold me a dream,
Then delivered me a nightmare.
You’ve acquired a front-row seat to my suffering,
Only thing remaining is my inevitable death,
And I can see the changes.
So much that I don’t face myself in the mirror,
Being Stephano DiMera;
Our situation was young and restless,
I felt like Bo from days of our lives,
I thought I would never lose Hope.
Being around you was the source of my strength,
Of late it felt like you’re kryptonite;
Fatigue taking over,
I hallucinate on the hour.
It feels like I am being persecuted by an unjust love,
Tortured by a heart that gave you its trust;
And I am at war with my whole being,
For nothing works in accordance with each other.
Now, the future I saw in your eyes,
As become this cursed reality I have to live by.
I wanted us to chase the stars together,
Using their connection to lasso the moon,
I am left to watch them go up in flames.
I blame myself,
I shouldn’t have given you more than your weight.
Now, the burden is overbearing,
And I am left in this miserable state.
