You’re the wolf in sheep’s clothing,

The two faced man.

Your words had the gift of charming those around you.

Deceiving them.

Obscuring their ability to see your true nature.

You were like a virus that spread though us all.

Every word spoken was like a toxic fume,

Unknowingly filling our lungs.

Feeding into your words as if a remedy.

But in truth,

They were the poison,

Destroying those around you
