Love is a fairytale filled with lies.

It’s a figment of our imagination.
Like the devil appearing as an angel.
He gets our hopes up, then dashes them.

Keith Shaw is my devil.
He may look like a model in GQ clothing,
But he’s a snake with a poisonous strike.

His words, actions, and touch ignite my soul.
Makes me feel after so long of being numb.
I can’t help being drawn to him.
I wish I could change it;
Wish I could reject him.
But my heart won’t let me.

Keith is as much mine,
As I am his.
And I’m determined to prove we’re meant for each other,
Even if it kills us both.
