Beauty Love Lust Desire
Dare i touch the ivory spire?
velvet skin, ruby lips
deepest eyes my heart skips
In awe i feint an outstretched hand
to touch the rose that makes the land
fragile rose, deadly thorn
scent of love to touch to mourn
Been scarred for life by touching the rose
ignore the pain for the love it grows
pristine glass broken shard
clear and pure it cuts so hard
the pain draw back my bloodied hand
the timeless wound denies the sand
sugar sweet and yet so sour
seconds pass another hour
long gone you left me here to die
red rose, dear Rose, take to the sky...
