Many secrets were held
In the gems around her neck
Well hidden, years past and present

Though none ever knew
She wore it, quite overt
Always knowing, just what it meant

Smiling, each time
She’d touch the jewels
Remembering all, who came before

Counting the days
Until, it was time
She could, again, add one more

Poor fellow, he
Who courted and wooed
He didn’t stand a single chance

Rosa merely kept him
For her next kill
Twas her secret to true romance
