Random Poem:


Let RED and BLACK emerge
from your frozen EPIDERMIS,
and let me unravel your
It is about a LOVE
that TEARS and BURNS but never FLATLINES...
SHE anticipated death,
and DEATH becomes HER.
Her ILL-signatured body was
NOTHING but his CANVAS, a MERE scratch paper.
How LOVELY her CHILD would have become, if it weren't for the SICKLE BURIED inside her WOMB.
AH! What a PITY,
seeing you like THIS.
