Blossom of Death

Blossom of death,
Sitting pale and pretty.
In the shadows of mystery,
Luring the unwary
To have a little taste.

A whiff. A sniff.
To find another meal,
In an effort to truly heal,
Lost souls, misguided zeal.
An appetite disgraced.

And the thrill of the find,
Beckoning none too unkind,
The shadows of the mind.
Humanity misplaced.

Writhing with smiles,
For bitter pills we take.
Our faith we forsake
For the idols we make.
A conscience erased.

Gasping for air.
Paroxysms of pleasure,
Pain of excess measure,
And pursuit of treasure.
And a world laid to waste.

Springing anew,
A hope, once almost lost,
At unimaginable cost.
White as the wispy frost,
Signs of decaying haste.
