Black Roses

Dark shadows creep across the land
Engulfing, consuming, embracing
All that we once shared
Your poison fills my veins
Fog covers my eyes
Leaches out the light
The world becomes a gray haze
The bite that once tasted so sweet
Only leaves the bitter residue of your venom
Bare trees sway and break
Under the coarse brisk winds
Roots are ripped and severed
No harvest will be reaped this season
The once fertile fields
Have become barren under your touch
The path of destruction
You felt behind in your wake
Will never be the same again
Soot covers all that is felt behind
Of what you looked into my eyes
And called love
