Don't mind her

 

She's a...she's a

 

A Heartbreaker

 

What?

 

She's a...Heartbreaker!

 

What's that?

 

 

 

Well:

 

She eyes them first.

 

She's gotta find the guy, first.

 

Then she'll pounce on the poor sap.

 

As if he stood no chance

 

He doesn't.

 

It's something in her eyes.

 

They are daggers dressed as diamonds.

 

Diamonds, you say?

 

Yes. Diamonds.

 

She's attractive but once close quite...

 

Disastrous.

 

Her trail is lengthy, too.

 

Who knows how many hearts she's

 

Pierced through.

 

Is that what 'H' is for?

 

Yes and no. 'H' was her former self.

 

She'd wear it proudly on her cape.

 

Now it adorns her, as if a bib.

 

Stained from remnants of her prey

 

Hm.

 

She's no hero! Can't you see?

 

She's as tragic as fallen;

 

It's she who needs rescuing

 

 

 

Mind her, I shall…
