Mirror can you tell me how to stay forever young?
Let me know the secret,
I will hold my twisted tongue,
Please protect my beauty,
Velvet skin so pure and white,
Hear my name resounding like a hymn at dead of night.
Once I struck a servant,
She's a virgin, free from sin,
Drops of blood caress me and refine my aging skin,
Could this be the answer, uncorrupted Carmine red?
