All women aren’t good women. Some move like smooth criminals. Once the mask is off, you cannot unsee her.

Look human, but are inhumane

She looks like me

But does not love like me

Because she has no heart

She steals joy because

She is morally bankrupt

Rotten to her core

Smooth Criminals

Will steal your heart,

Your money,

Your kindness,

Your joy,

Your mind,

Your thoughts,

Your soul,

Your body,

Your time,

Your health,

As I watch helplessly

She stole

All she could

All I allowed

All I treasured

All I loved

I wasn’t ready

For this smooth criminal

This woman

A smooth criminal

Saunters away

Wreaking havoc

Yet another day

She kills

She destroys

Takes life

Blocks progress

Leaves death

Steals sleep

Takes joy

Betrays trust

Steals peace

Crushes souls

Blackens hearts

Makes life difficult

She harms

Knows not how to heal

Takes good

Turns it to evil

Breaks spirits

Breaks strides

She’s a smooth criminal

Who looks like me

But cannot

Love like me

She is

Morally bankrupt

She is

Beautiful, yet corrupt

She is

Conspicuously evil

She is

Rotten to her core
