Rose Red Lesser known fairytale


Love me you said with roses in your eyes and jewels spilling from your mouth. You spoke of everythings and forevers as if you knew them. Your hands were soft as they encircled my wrist.  Infinity you whisper lodging a pearl into my ear. There, does that not look better you ask leaving a ruby scar in my hand. I wished to tell you I could only hear half of what you said. Your earnest wished left me half deaf. I opened my mouth and a snake slithered forward to answer for me. Your surprise and disgust showered us in riches. The snake was company enough so I kept my mouth shut.
