Once a fairy charmed a demon
He wanted her with him she did not,
His desperate eagerness was shunned
He never knew how to control himself
Nor did he thought it was needed
For he thought she was to be grateful
As a mighty demon was in love with her.
He harrowed and bothered her to no end
But she stayed just the way she was
First she ignored and then she grew cold,
Once her friends asked her if she will ever regret
For not giving in to him for he will not let her live
a life of peace and love, he will stalk her forever
the fairy told her friends their paths are never to merge,
compromise to evil for any reason opens door to hell.
