Root

Courtesan and slave to greed,
Hallowed host to wicked deed,
Ripping hearts from souls in need,
Implanting each with evil seed,

Stolen hope and dreams combine,
Tortured souls by cold design,
Marked by this immortal sign,
Angelic life in quick decline,

Sedated shells of emptiness,
Secluded in deceptive bliss,
Insulting glimpse of happiness,
Neglected all but by its kiss.
