Her lips are dark as blood.
Her hair is black as night.
She waits for her lover to meet her in the woods.
From her crimson cloak, she pulls up her hood.
A chill is in the air as snowflakes blow all around.
Suddenly, she hears a familiar, comforting sound.
Her lover awaits her, to wrap her in his arms.
He always knew how to charm her even when it risked her harm.
It was his deep, passionate kisses that she could never resist.
The way his soft touch felt always brought her to bliss.
The snow keeps falling like sparkling pixie dust.
On this night, purity and innocence is lost in lust.
