Danger! Warning! Beware!

I am the colour of death!

I am the flesh of that heart

which can beat but stop,

which can smile but break.

I am the passion inside -

I am those flames:

Dare you play with me?


I keep away but draw you close;

I enter your vision but let myself hide;

I am a monster: I cause you great pain;

And I guarantee this: you shall know me some day.

The End
