I've never been one for it.
Never gave it a second thought.
My Mother warned me not to go into the shadows.
Only danger would welcome me there.
But his scent; so sweet like honey couldn't be denied.
I'm helpless near him.
Find someone who'll take care of you.
But this man will.
He's made promises he swears to keep.
Take care of me.
Protect me from harm.
Keep happiness in these eyes.
He screams about the world and it's misguided ways.
My Mother tells me to watch out, he has a temper.
My love will never hurt me.
The wars are raging.
The lies are being spun.
He's decided there's no other way to keep me out of harm.
No other way to protect me.
Happiness will greet you there, he says.
There's two silver glints in the light.
A small click.
I'm seeing black.
But he'll be with me.
I'll be protected.
I'm sorry I never listened.
