Not quite sure if I like this one... too many big words make it overwhelming, I think. Oh well, tell me what you think.

These shades of crimson overlapping
suffocating her in metallic ocean waves
the taste of the end, bittersweet, hoping
praying for solace, an end to this hellish cycle
of lovers' partings, of a wilting rose
drawing to a close, looking for a miracle
 
These hues of scarlet overwhelming
intimidating her in uncontrollable desperation
the scent of death, pervading, drowning
drenching her heart in locked away mementos, reminders
of past mistakes, of broken promises
bloodsoaked tresses, looking for salvation escaping her
 
These contrasting emotions conflicting
shrivelling her heart and soul; expectant of beauty
observant of his insouciance; falsely predicting
devoting too much to the slightest of chances, this
of snake eyes, of a simply complicated game
Trying to remember his name, she falls into the abyss
