He wasn't what I expected when I opened the door.
He was dapper,
A perfect gentleman.
Opening doors and pulling out chairs.
He was beautiful.
He smelled of a thousand childhood memories.
Nothing I would dare to dream
Would entertain the likes of me.
He said all the right things,
Made all the right moves,
Enticed into an aura of comfort -
But when I awoke,
Red dripping from my head,
I knew I had made a mistake.
