Come Into My Care

Where did you go?

Don’t hide from me.

Show yourself!

Let me set you free.

Offer yourself.

Come into my care.

I’m not really a beast,

This isn’t my lair.

Words I say,

From under my veil.

Reassurances required,

As one assails.

As trust is gained,

Fear diminishes.

Can you guess,

How this sinister game finishes?
