I don't know if it was his warm embrace. Maybe it was the was the mellow light of the burning tinder reflecting in his eyes. Perhaps it was the magic of his alluring smile.
The way his scars wrinkled just a little when he moved his arm to reach my hand. But something about him made hope surge through my veins. And I gave myself to this beautiful being.
To this gorgeous two headed snake I thought was human. I trusted him with my life, which he so easily threw under the bus for another. I was in love with a fraud.
But I allowed myself to see the world with Cupid's arrow driven deep into my spine. I denied all the warning signs. Until he left without even the slightest trace of remorse.
And I was left in front of a mirror staring at the damage he had done. He was never a friend or a lover. He was a renegade who preyed on my heart.
