Once, A Crimson Rose

Beauty no longer in her heart

A life of misery is left to show

A vile and disgusting form of womanhood

But once, she had been beautiful

Like a sweet crimson rose


Her indigo eyes showed no remorse

And her smile was a devious plan

Setting her trap like a cunning spider

Casting webs of deceit

Her pray all being man


Seducing them with a forgiving kindness

A falsehood of happy tomorrows

Taking away their souls in countless ways

Surviving on their grief and self-annointed
