I was hidden in the shadows,
When suddenly the world was blinded
By a harsh light.
I first saw his smile,
Radiating warmth and a touch of mystery.
But I didn't see the danger in his eyes
Until it was too late.
I was too busy being mesmerized
By the rest of his perfection
As it came into focus.
His stunning curves and edges,
His luscious locks,
And, of course,
That pearlescent smile which first caught my eye.
He charmed his way into my life effortlessly,
And built up my confidence as if it were a wall,
Brick by brick,
And compliment by compliment.
I finally left my corner of shadows
And embraced his light.
I fell for my young god,
My human Apollo,
My angelic vision.
Soon, my wall was complete.
But insults, like blows from a hammer, caused my wall to start to crumble.
I turned to the light of my life,
When I needed him the most,
But instead all I saw was the flash of the smile
I always loved,
And my beauty disappeared
In a cloud of dark smoke.
My wall collapsed into rubble,
And my shadows dragged me back to my black hole of sorrow and despair.
I guess what I really fell for wasn't an angel at all.
Instead it was just a demon in disguise.
