Poiseness Black Rose

She planted poisonous

Black roses into my

Heart until my veins

Pumped pints of

Venom through them,

None restraint to

The pain as I build

Strength by living through

The disturbance that I

Once I again

Put myself in,

Black roses healed

My sanity,

Black roses toughened

My skin,

Black roses are my enemy

But black roses

Are my my friend
