Delilah - Poem by Angelica Duardo

You’re my Delilah
The one from the valley
You were my downfall, disruption
Sent out for my destruction

I am your Samson
The one who truly loved you
And you betrayed my love
Only for coins in a sack

I fell for you near a brook
I fell in love with just one look
How should I have known
That you were fated to betray my love?

Eleven hundred silver coins
From every one of those jealous lords
Was all you needed to kill me love
And a pair of golden scissors to cut my locks

I fell asleep between your knees
You saw your chance to achieve your plan
You left me weak and bleeding fragility
Lying here with all my broken dreams

And you’re happy to see me fall
While I stand here in fear and appalled
I don’t know how you ever dared
Or if this you’ll ever regret

How much was your disdain
Towards my beautiful hair
That you took your scissors
And made those dreadful incisions

You’re my Delilah
You’re my Delilah
You’re my delusion

In the temple
You will feel the tremble
In my voice, in my soul
In the soil, in the stones

You’ll see the tremble
Crumble all to the floor
You’ll find it was just an innocent hoax
I am still strong, even without my locks

You’ll see it all
While I gloriously fall
Blind and all
I’m still as strong

Because strength my dear
Comes from within
Because I, my dear
Am strong from within

You were my Delilah
You were my delusion
You were my Delilah
My heartless delusion
