I knew you liked me.
The way you smiled at me, your eyes lit up when you said hello to me in the street.
You were special, not like the other girls.
That’s why you invited me in wasn’t it?
That’s why you left your keys on the outside of the front door, to invite me in?
I took your keys for you, stepped into the hall and closed the door carefully, considerately. I heard music coming from the kitchen, heard you singing along; so happy, like always. Your sparkling eyes found mine…
…only why’d you have to scream?
