Dancing with the devil
Smelling of crimson rose
A faint scent of brimstone
Perfect prose

Your soul taken in despair
Emotions the currency
No reprieve
When Adam seeks his eve

Lilith in disguise
Hard won failure
Ode to need
All else irrelevant

She is yours
A promise never kept
Fangs besmirch a winning smile
Tarnished trophy wife

Too much given to allure
Sanctity denied
Appearance of an angel
Eyes of a serpent

Careful of these endeavors
Easy love is easily lost
Purity in this world
A commodity hard to find
