Poisonous Rose

You were so lovely back then
like a rose picked from a garden
a glimpse was more than enough
to enslave my lonely heart

And Like a bee I have longed
that sweet nectar you possess
never thought I would be wrong
sweet poison, pain all you’ve caused

Angelic smiles, all were facades
to hide the ugliness inside you
tears you shed, part of masquerade
so blinded, I haven’t had a clue

Then you have left me for dead
wearing the mask of deception
like a rose glowing in bright red
the pretender, back in her throne
