He preys on the innocent
Watching those who are sincere and pure
He is corrupt.
They fall when he approaches.
Blinded by faux pas
Carpe diem, they are told
He hooks them then lets them go.
They are changed, battered, heartbroken, left with scares or another.
A wall is created, no one is allowed in.
Hearts are strong but some may never heal.
He goes to another,
The cycle starts again
When will he learn?

Nice. I loved it. Reminds me of a poem I wrote a while ago.

Keep writing. !
