My heart was young and green 

So full of life and love 

I thought you were a queen 

Sent to me from above 

Turns out you’re born below

Complete with pair of horns

Instead of a halo 

A rose covered in thorns

Ever thirsty for blood

A vampire in the night 

A monster from the mud

Giving children a fright

My heart ripe for reaping 

The fertile crop was torched

On my knees just weeping 

My loving heart was scorched

Spreading her leather wings

Her laughter filled my head

Singing a wicked song

Spat and left me for dead

    1. Finishing up organizing and editing a whole collection of poems to publish for the first time. Turns out I had 100 poems about love so why not put them together?
