  • A stunning bud of color
    Adorning jewels of morning dew
    The perfect bloom of bloodshot
    With radiant rosy hue

    Delicately laced around an emerald stem
    Were petals soft as silk
    Cherry stained streaks
    On her wrists as pale as milk

    Her blood ran red
    Cut by a thorn
    Fingers traced the patterns
    Along which her skin was torn

    The beauty of crimson
    Gave her soul an escape
    With a dying breath
    Her mouth left agape
