She cuts thru me like a razor blade
I fall victim every time
My blood runs cool, though her words cut deep
In the end, a restless night of sleep.

Up with the sun, her scorching tongue
Has already begun its assault upon the day
She begins her attack, stays on my back
Until she’s sure to get her way.

Steady hands and peace of mind
I left them somewhere in my past
She’s gotten to me, slowly with ease
Terminating my spirit at last.

Through it all, though pain prevails
I love her nonetheless
And couldn’t even if I wanted to
Ever get myself out of this.

Because Steel Lady, you’re as sharp as they come
I never stood a chance.
We were always just close enough
To share this double-edged romance.
