Blood Rose Rosy Red

Blood rose rosy red
In the end your reign
Is more than acid wet
When a woman scorned is stone within

Her blooms about a jealous weave 
Envy's thorn gleaming hard shell green
From soul of deadly poison ivy
Where blossom thoughts be born conniving

And blacker petals tear...
Unto Orchids petty dear
Are her drops of another's letting
Wounded, wake of men dead and dying 

Who holds what her secrets are
Upon beauty's solemn face
Or across a painted flesh garden 
When a moon is full and the sun is ever drowning grace 

Could it be the gnomes or moles beneath 
Sheer sure evil of pale beauty skin
Bringing out colours of femme fatale
Wicked charms of this woman chameleon
