Beware the Snake in the Grass

by Alex Penuelas   Mar 9, 2017

He's the kind of person
who would play the victim
of the crimes that he himself
Has committed.

He is the kind of person
Who would act innocent and hurt
When in reality he's nothing more
Than a snake in the grass.

He'll say he's your best friend
and then talk shit about you
Behind your back.

Never confess you innermost
Desires to such a person,
For he will use all of those secrets
Against you at the perfect opportunity.

    Alex just discovered this little gem. I think we've all experienced such snakes in our lives its always worse when they use us to get what they want. You take care I'm sure she will see the snake in him eventually.. Milly x

      yeah. the guy that i'm referring to was a person that I once called my best friend. That was, until he used me to get to the girl that I was dating at the time.
