The black satin flower
In full bloom
It's scent illuminating the air
It's poison berries so inviting.
The beautiful plant
Flowering silently
It's velvet petals crying to be caressed
The wasp waiting to sting.
Just as the rose
So beautiful
Screams to be picked
The malicious thorns waiting to gash.
Love
Waiting for the victim
Waiting for the fool
Feeding on the innocent.
