Devil in a halo

You call out love; I gave you loath

I am kind; I am polite

You need affection; I present you with the abomination

I give out joy; I give out pleasure

You want sympathy; I give you callousness

I am nice and I am sweet

But I could be your devil in a halo.

    A nice poem and take on today’s prompt Mich. I had to read it a few times and then a small devil appeared on my shoulder and we had the conversation again 🙂

    I like the image of Cupid with a gun, and am scared by it, as well. Excellent point of view, Mich.
