Blood Orchid

Updated on November 21, 2015
Mihnea Andreescu profile image

Mihnea-Andrei Andreescu is a Romanian Symbolist/Avant-Garde poet and author of "Of Ecstasy and Sorrow".

Serving septic pleasures

-A crimson bane in bloom

Nature hath contrived her-

Inflorescence of doom.

Brittle seeds of sorrow

Birth noxious crimson petals.

Injecting rugged skin

Like wisps of stinging nettles.

Venom flows through my veins,

Malignant ,cruel and fast.

I succumb to darkness

A chance to rest,at last...
