your beauty is a front
for the poison is hidden
it is deadly and ready to scourge
to leak forth to destroy
to corrupt those who love you
your beauty is the trap
and those who are fooled
you bring them into the real truth
and ensnare them into death
the passion you create shall consume
destroy all things held dear to life
and your beauty is all they will remember
for it was the thing that brought them to you
before they can run away, you reveal the deception
and it is too late and they are burning in your death
