To the Next Woman

He will tell you, you're beautiful.
He will weave stories like Arachne weaves webs.
He will appear as a knight in shinning armor,
With the crest of a prince on his chest.

He will make you feel perfect,
Like an individual snow flake,
But the elegance he paints you with-
Will make you as fragile as a cabinet of glass.

He is a master of disguise.
A different face for every occasion.
He is a master of lies-
His tongue as twisted as a snake around it's prey.
He knows nothing but control, and control over you he gains.

Because every step he took towards you,
Was a strategic and calculated step.
He manipulates as if he was birthed from Satan,
A charming smile portrays him as your saving grace.

And for the next woman,
To be lured into his springing trap-
I hope you will take my words and be advised.
That the loving things he said-
We're nothing more than open ended lies.

But that doesn't mean, you're not beautiful.
That doesn't mean you, weren't unique.
It doesn't mean, you don't have a grace about you-
That only a falling snowflake can replicate.
Because you are perfect.
And I only hate to see-
Your skin becoming a map-
Of all the ways he mistreats.

    I love this so much

    I liked the point it was getting at, heart break sucks. I for sure get it.

    I have lived this. The shattering realization that it was all a game is heart wrenching and soul sucking. Great work.

      I feel for you! Every man I've been with- every man I've been around, has in some way embodied the monster that women fear. My heart goes out to you, and thanks.

      A fine first offering on this site, Miss. Your concern for the "next woman" conveys maturity and grace. I look forward to more from your pen.

      Very well written, one can feel the pain when reading. I understand where you are coming from, and I am sorry this happened to you, but if you look carefully you might find that not EVERY man is like that. The problem is to find the right one, and I pray you will one day.
      This coming from a guy who is happily married for over 40 years!
      And by the way, my wife is the boss! 🙂

        I know not all men are like this, and I too hope to one day find "the one" who is different. Thanks for reading and sharing.

        Behind every good man, is a strong woman ;P
