I would watch out for that ginger if I were you. 

One touch of her hair and you will burn to a crisp. 

Don’t look into her eyes; maybe you’ll turn to stone. 

When she walks into a room, everyone puts on

sunglasses because her inferno locks

might make you go blind.


~Then again…~


I would learn more about that ginger if I were you. 

One touch of her hair and you would be amazed. 

Look into her eyes; they are just as incredible. 

When she walks into a room, all attention is towards her inferno locks, and no eyes wander.

This is virtually me.  My red hair is basically the story of my life!

:D I love this! I like that you begin with the shame cowering its head, yet you end by owning your most distinctive trait, proudly placing it on display. The one thing I would suggest for you to add to the parallel-ism here is to also make the words of each pair of stanzas correlate. I think it would read more smoothly that way, almost like a kind of slant rhyme, and it would also make the unique structure more obvious. As is, though, I already give you props on creativity!
