In her statuesque beauty,
A figure, so grotesque I can see...
She was meticulously carved with care.
But a darkened soul inside shrieking to bare
 
Layers of contrite, mournful devouring traits,
With her beguiling embrace,
Fools beware...
Never befall, stay aware.
 
She graces you with grief,
Like a midnight thief...
Solicits sweet, short-lived revenge.
She will cut you over and over again.
 
This mystical being resides
In this statuesque bride...
Cajoles you to the edge of the abyss...
So, never follow to find your bliss.
 
Bottomless pit awaits...
Hell’s fire you must anticipate...
Once you’re snared...
There’s no going back... I’m afraid.
