The Black Widow

black widow

Deadly as a rattle snake, poisoned by hate
Seething with passionate anger, she lies in wait
One by one, she’ll kill them all
She silently plotted her enemies’ downfall

And as his corpse grew colder, so did her heart

Consumed by her love, driven by hate
Hook, line and sinker they’ll fall for her bait
Hell hath no fury like a scorned lover
Her husband’s killers will be no more, when this is all over

And as his corpse grew colder, so did her heart

They ruled it as an accident, but she knew better
Keep her promise she will, for worse or better
She won’t rest until justice is served
On a cold platter of death, just as they deserved

And as his corpse grew colder, so did her heart

Her dress was black, but darker was her soul
Remnants of her once happy life, ash and burnt coal
Each kill was swift, painful and unmerciful, a natural-born killer
But her black heart was overwhelmed with poison, it finally killed her

And as her corpse grew colder, so did her heart.
