-Voured, -Flowered, -Stroyed

 

Petals in the alleyway

red as blood, red as blood.

still unveiled; an almost bride.

So beautiful she would have been.

 

Red as blood, red as blood

colors flashed before her eyes.

So beautiful she would have been,

so untouched before that night.

 

Colors flashed before her eyes.

He watched her fade and left her there

so untouched before that night,

but evil takes no care.

 

He watched her fade and left her there

despoiled and broken in filthy darkness

for evil takes no care.

It was days before they found her,

 

despoiled and broken in filthy darkness,

still unveiled; an almost bride.

It was days before they found her

petals in the alleyway.

The End
