"Oh don't scream so my love,
but instead whisper sweet words
into my ear, for only us to hear."
Her words came out in soft tones,
lips moving so carefully.
She was so quiet, so as not to
Yet getting caught was not on
his mind, but something else.
"Run away with me.
My Scarlett Rose.
To Somewhere we can be together
and not have to hide ourselves beneath
the black satin sky. With only the moon
as our audience."
He kissed her hands so lovingly
Holding her wih such tenderness
that she might have cried if not for the
"I'd risk a million lives to be with you.
Let us run, run to place where no laws
ban for any wrong two to be together."
And so they ran,
the two lovers.
Young and filled with
Both hungry for their love
to be free of hiding.
But as the sun rose
and lit the sky and gave
sight to those watching
the young lovers were
caught, and their blood
For a prince was not
to be with a raven of the night.
And so for the rest of days,
the young lovers
for their love was cursed
and their souls damned.
For each life they lived,
they fell for one another,
and lost one another in death.
