Coming like a cover to protect and keep Acknowledging the warmth, did my heart beep A tug, a snuggle closer to keep from cold's bite. Hid the truth beneath, a smile, a sneer - hell's fright! Panic painted the picture and my heart raced. Creeping in, unsure thoughts of what to do reigned A friend had become a fiend without drama A handshake, a hug, a kiss turned dagger! Yet, I'm covered in a cloak of "warmth"... From one I thought cared and would hold forte. A representative that spoke with pure "light" was a purveyor, a means of hell's delight. With soft, white fleece like that of sheep, a voice so sweet that says, "more sleep" Relayed "truths" that had no fruits... with the finesse of a brute. A smile, soft eyes, "caring words", yet a mask all to assist him get done with the task! Coming like a cover I uncovered... The subtle patterns of a devourer. @imanikel 23072020 Frances Kelvin Otung
It is that ‘smile’ that covers like a mask, hiding the true intent. The one that sucks you in, making you comfortable …until, the prick! Sleeping Beauty can easily identify with this.
