guise of a smile

those vibes emanating from him
were evil guised as good
I sensed it in his rambling
he being your friend
I ignored my inner warning

he almost destroyed us both

It sucks when you can see a friend of a friend isn't a good person. Unfortunately an experience I think we've all had.

Sometimes that inner voice speaks more than we know or choose to know! I guess it's all about listening and faith!

Wow. Succinct and powerful. I think the evil disguised as good can often be more dangerous than plain unveiled evil.
