you were trouble when you smiled at me on such a grey day
Not even the rain could hide the darkness coming from you, filling the streets with no joy in sight.
But your eyes were so innocent and filled with joy and peace.
But now those same eyes show nothing but darkness and cloudy days ahead.
And as I watch you from a far now, I see how you stalk your prey and when they least expect it you fall right into place.
Setting the trap that is needed to capture them and even though I tried to warn them.
I couldn’t shake them off your spell and when it was over, it was me they warned, for they thought I was next.
Yet I’ve already been in their shoes, and he doesn’t return for seconds, for once he ruins you he doesn’t notice you again.
You become the ghost of his past and even if you haunt him, he won’t care, for there is no heart or conscious in this man, if that’s what you want to call him.
