Trace from Me to Them

I was so sure when I came by, 
That you
Not only couldn’t tell a lie
You wouldn’t even try. 

Too wrapped in your deep eyes
To see,
How cunning your disguise 
Was shown:
An angel face of demon size. 

They all looked pleased to me, 
But were
Masks that I couldn’t see.
They had
Their fangs hidden under glee. 

They were approachable and sincere. 
All seemed
Expecting my next word of cheer.
So sad
That they were full of fear. 

I came with new and light
And they
Came with sneers and spite.
You sat
Just being beautiful and bright. 

You were my only to be bare. 
We took
The smiles out of their lair. 
You were
My perfect gift, so fair. 

As soon as I told you aloud,
The masks 
All fell and I felt cold. 
The sounds 
Were mine to count. 

You and I apart in dark
And soon,
Not one could be a mark
Of light.
You were becoming art.

    Loved of you arranged your poem. I can get so stuck sometimes in writing a poem that rhymes the typical way that I forget to just let my creativity run free. I love the flow of your poem. Congratulations on your poem getting featured.
