The reaper's tainted roses

The reaper's tainted roses

A Poem by Curiosity's Virtuoso

Another links arms with the reaper's charming stems

Petite and pale,
Chamber curls liquidated to thirsty amber ale
With eyes that lace power to the holy grail
Of meaningful thoughts built for the trepidatious soul's prevail
In a fated crimson veil accompliced by a coffin's final nail
To restore an animated body to cracked and frail.

Tall, sleek, and strong
Willowed hands steady like a surgeon's prong
High and sneer he stands, but not for long
Fore a victim wavers to cherubic movements without prolong
Ambitiously he awaits the season's harvesting gong
A frightened lullaby which spat on the free bird's song

As she peers from her balcony windows condensed with lie
She spots a suited figure stomp the doorsteps dry
Followed by her righteous father's sigh
As he opened the doorway to a welcoming wide
Shamelessly calling his daughter from her tower high
To meet a savior whom is certainly not shy

Her steps unveil in gracefully pleaded gems
His surpass her's; enchanting as if in hypnotic REM
They meet in the middle, his smirk sly but grim
He outstretches a hand clanned of roses, a silent whim
With lighting burning within irises sparkling to condemn
She accepts his ivory contracts and signs her signature in pen

Never within his fingers rested rich omen
The petals shrivel and choke, again and again
While the leaves churn into the color of bloodied knives times ten
The mischievous reaper handed her an ended lifeline on thorned stems
Then she smiled, linking arms with him
The final whisper spoke it's amen
Her delicate footsteps never echoed again

Brilliant again. =D

But one small, tiny, miniature piece of construction... 4th Stanze you have a full stop with no following capital, 'her's. enchanting'.

But I loved it yet again.
