Red Rose

Her smile unfolds delicately

Like a blood-red rose

And from the opening in her sandals

I can see her red-painted toes


Her eyes smolder, fiery

And her cheeks bloom delicate pink

A ruddy tinge stains her lips

As she bites down, and tears wink


And she smiles in pain

And her mouth a red rose

Her teeth pointed cruelly

Her eyes in repose

The End
