Two sides to life
Two faces
Two edges
And so are you

Underneath your beauty
You hid your thorns
A double faced monster
Posing as a beauty

You crept in
like a shadow
You are a plague
Seeping through the pores

Poisoned the blood
Wormed your way to the heart
Ravaged the whole body
Beyond repair

You left passion
Where your hands touched
Only to replace them
With delightful pain

Smother you I should
When you were in me
With the heat of my passion
And my burning gaze

Silence me you should
When you had the chance
For all you left behind
Is a wounded snake
