I thought I was smart, a seventeen-year-old college sophomore borders on genius. But a viral photo and bullies crushed my trusting and naïve heart.
Then an old gypsy gave me hope and I began to believed love might be possible.
He wormed his way into my heart, unwilling to give up. My friendship with Kohl Black evolved allowing him to break down my walls. But the basketball star and the geek only ends well in a fairy tale. He crushed my heart and showed me everything I believed and trusted was a complete lie.

I ran, hiding from a world set on my destruction.
Now, I’m back. I’ve returned to the scene of the pain. He let me run once, he won’t let it happen again.
She hides underneath layers of frumpy clothes trying to be invisible but I see the perfection gleaming from the inside, shining like a beacon on the outside.

I had her. I held everything in my arms.
Deceit ripped her away from me so long ago, now she’s back and I’ll tie her to the bed, if I have to, but I refuse to lose her again.
