The house was pretty and the yard was wide
And I felt strong with you at my side
Your eyes at night had a beautiful glowing in them
And I knew in my heart just what was growing in them

Ah, but you made me drink poison
It felt smooth running down my throat
I love you, and you made me drink poison
It was cool and smooth and sweet
Do you remember?

We had a bed of daisies thriving in the yard
And I quit my job, so I could hold you all the time
I tried to stop the thing metastasizing in us
But in the warm, slow evening
I could feel it rising in us

Ah, and you made me drink poison
It felt so smooth, sliding down my throat
I love you so much, and you made me drink poison
It was cool and smooth and sweet and cool
And smooth and sweet and cool and smooth

    General CommentI don't think it is literally about murder since this appears to take place early in the relationship before the Alpha Couple hits rock bottom. The poison could refer to their alcoholism and perhaps one blaming the other for introducing it into the relationship. Either way, the main character loves the other deeply but also knows early on that the relationship is toxic and doomed.
