The Scarlet flickering like the sunset ray

“The Scarlet flickering like the sunset ray”

the Scarlet flickering like the sunset ray
blazing boils chill the skin
it’s as those foul flames feign to be my dear kin
indeed, a sheer diaphanous cobweb lay

a shallow smile upon the lips of the fire
Candid, Naïve, Cryptic, Elfin
but look, the nefarious midnight comes to sin
detrimental has become man’s shire
