Porcelain hands are white

perfection

parts of statues

paler than life

to still for death.

Sharp nails are almost like

dangerous

knives on neck

beauty in death

ugly in life.

Dark wooden box is sweet

innocence

present is new

gift to old

burden to young.

Blood red ribbons are beautiful

intertwining

silk through water

trapped by the trapped

loved by the unloved.

Two people with no hearts bleeding

captured

but not seeing the other

open treasure chest

share swallowed secret.
