The Snake

The snake

It slithers around me

Putting on a show

As if I'm in control

But little do I know

It's charming me



I give myself over

Allowing the fangs

To pierce my flesh

The venom

Paralyzing me


Smiling proud

At the feat

Begins the retreat

Into the grass


From my vision


I thought this

This was the test

To prove I'm worthy

But it's poison

Not love


And you left me

To blame myself

A mind full

Of unanswered questions

Clever snake

Stupid prey

Last two lines sum up the emotion perfectly.?
