Love is a Serial Killer

Love is a Serial Killer


 One lazy Tuesday afternoon
I was walking towards my car,
When I noticed a man looking my way,
Staring at me from afar.

He walked to my side and said "hello."
“I think we're in the same class,
And the way you always answer right,
Kind of makes me look like an ...."

"If the shoe fits," I replied with a smirk
But I felt the tremor in my voice.
He grabbed my hand and led me west,
I was too stunned to remember I had a choice.

He took me to a park not far from school
Where we sat and talked it seemed for days
I was mesmerized by his velvet voice
And captivated by him in every way

We met everyday for quite some time
Taking in his voice, laugh, and touch
My soul and heart were mesmerized
And I knew right off I wanted him too much.

"Oh, I love you girl," he cooed to me,
You’ll never know what you're worth.
You’re the only one I'll ever want,
You’re the loveliest thing on earth."

His love for me was a very strong drug, 
Sedating me and numbing my senses. 
And as I fell asleep he whispered to me,
"When you wake, we'll drop all pretenses."

I was confused and bound when I woke up,
Disoriented to say the least.
He noticed I woke and walked towards me saying,
"Ahh yes. First I plant, and then I feast."

He started by revealing the truth to me,
And with every lie I felt intense pain.
His words and cruelty cut deep and wide,
 And he whispered, "Your loss will always be my gain."

He tore into me with every word,
His disinterest knocked me down.
His insults ripped my skin, and he said 
"Every princess I've conquered has lost her crown.
They’ve begged and pleaded for me to stop,
 And with tears for me they'll all drown."

I saw the knife and felt relief,
At least the pain couldn’t last.
He toyed with it, then set it down,
Not wanting to finish me so fast.

"Just so you know, princess,
I never loved you." he lifted his knife once more.
  He smiled at me, and stabbed my heart,
And laughed while my blood dripped on the floor.
