I am a sinner and I worship evil
Blood is thinner but you will never know
Can you confess that you thrive in chaos?
You're a sorceress and your eye is on the lost

But you're dying
It's in your eyes

You're a charlatan
You get everything you wish
You're a harlot
Carry poison in your kiss

Beg forgiveness
With a dagger in your hand
Sow your death seed
And reap the dying lands

But you're crying
It's only vice

Empty vessel
Drained of hope
And none the lesser at the end of
A rope
Have you ever hated like I?
Know I still awaited the absence of lies

Watch your eager tongue
Attack me from behind

Riddle whispers
Bleak futile control
Like a twin sister
Adapting to a role

You're a murderer
Bloodlust increase
You're a harvester
Come close to spread disease

And you're hiding
I hear you cry

    My InterpretationI might be a little biased by this interpretation, but here it goes. I met a woman who I was an aquaintance with in highschool, however this was 14 years later. She claimed to be getting out of her marriage and we had an obvious connection. Turns out she was just unhappy and her marriage was still functioning, but failing due to her lack of emotional self control. She was over one night and her husband kept calling her over and over again because she wasn't at home. It was that point I knew she had been cheating on her husband and lying to every man she was with. She was only using me and telling me things I wanted to hear, to manipulate me. I deleted her from my life and even now, 8 months later, she keeps crawling back, apologizing in text messages, hoping I'm weak enough to fall for her spell again. As much as I loved her, I had to keep my distance because she is unhealthy for me, but sometimes I can still hear her voice, echoing in the back of my mind, whispering in my ear, telling me to come back to her so I can fill her ego.

    "Can you confess that you thrive in chaos?
    You're a sorceress and your eye is on the lost"

    She knew I was in a weakened state when she reached out to me after I made a concerning post on social media about my mental health. She pursued me because she thought it was going to be easy for her to have control over me.

    "But you're dying,
    It's in your eyes

    You're a charlatan
    You get everything you wish
    You're a harlot
    Carry poison in your kiss"

    I tried to talk to her about her problems and she broke to me that she hates herself and she does whatever she wants without any care or remorse for anyone else. She waves her finger around and can control weak men, only she poisons them in the process

    "Beg forgiveness
    With a dagger in your hand
    Sow your death seed
    And reap the dying lands

    But you're crying
    It's only vice"

    Instead of being a normal person and just saying "Hello", what she sends me is an apology for the past, after zero contact for 8 months. This angers me because she literally claims to be sending this message to "clear the air" but insists on bringing up the past. The reminder of the pain she inflicted is the hidden dagger in her hand as she tries to sow her seed, a seed that will never grow. She spreads disease everywhere she goes, yet does not understand that nobody will take her seriously after they realize she is poison incarnate and she will never be happy and will be alone forever
