The silent watcher lurks in darkness just beyond the black opening. Sweet green frames the danger in fragrant boughs of innocence. The lacy carpet whispers wide spirals in delicate lengths to lead the unknowing near peril’s command. Too close and the once carefree will tremble in silk wrapped steel, mesmerized by a thousand eyes. A quick thrust, hard, to breach the virgin breast. Venomous knives scabbarded in a velvet maw rip open the light to let the darkness in. A kiss so sweet has ever known the fading heart, embraced eternally in the strongest, softest, icy arms of love.
