A black narcissus lay on the desk

Draped over the open diary

A dark green ribbon tied to its stem

Fleetingly beautiful, then vile

A toxic weed dressed as a gift

The noxious bloom of jealousy

0o0o0

It matters not from whence it came

Petals have tainted the parchment

Inky words smeared in blood and tears

These pages cannot be rewritten

The narcissus can claim a chapter

But it can never claim the entire book
