Let RED and BLACK emerge
 1
from your frozen EPIDERMIS,
 2
and let me unravel your
 3
COLORFULLED past.
 4
 
 
It is about a LOVE
 5
that TEARS and BURNS but never FLATLINES...
 6
 
 
SHE anticipated death,
 7
and DEATH becomes HER.
 8
 
 
Her ILL-signatured body was
 9
NOTHING but his CANVAS, a MERE scratch paper.
 10
 
 
How LOVELY her CHILD would have become, if it weren't for the SICKLE BURIED inside her WOMB.
 11
 
 
AH! What a PITY,
 12
seeing you like THIS.

you've an eye for word manipulation to gather layer'd meaning -- like fractaliscious spoke the CAP's can be another of the layers here -- some relationships get under the skin
