Verona Valentine

Wine Red

Wine red
Like rose petals against the snow
Wine red
Like crimson apple pierced with an arrow

Wine red
Like blood emitting from the skin
Wine red
Like her ruby lipstick used for sin

Wine red
The drink that lovers share
Wine red
A drink to forget a nightmare

Like Snow White fooled
She ate the poison apple;
A death of beauty
But their dirty and wicked sins
Will be recovered with an enthusiastic fury
