“I know I shouldn’t want you, but I do.
That’s what makes you so dangerous.”
The darkness in your eyes is a paradox. It calls to me like a lost lover, beckoning me to go deeper into that oblivion. But I know that the only thing waiting for me is heartache and loss. That darkness tells me I can’t trust you.
But on the other hand, that darkness has a different draw. One that leaves me weak in the knees. One that sets my mind on fire and leaves my mouth watering. I know I shouldn’t want you, but I do.
And I suppose that’s what makes you so dangerous. I can’t resist what I know I shouldn’t want.

All I can do is try not to look at you.
