Symphony Of A Snake

Picture found on google images
Poem by me

It slithers around my heart
squeezing choking
dying heart
all whole new species
Heart Breaker Python
help I cry
nothing comes out
Your tail caresses my face
I shudder and your grip tightens

My breaths grow shorter
My heart beats rise faster
My mind swirls in the chaos

You evil snake
You nasty little creature

I laugh at your pity
I laugh at nothing

Your venom seeps into my skin
destroying me
destroying us

I was once a snake

my snake song grew short
my hiss went dark

I saw light
I saw my kills
I saw my trail of broken hearts
Then, I saw you
Lonely snake hiding
I let you free
It wasn't long till
you were killing me


  1. I wrote a poem last night in bed:

    Yours has been a trite and meaningless adventure

    I fear that if you follow this path to its end
    You will find a grave monument with a meager epitaph:

    Only two dates

    And a name which invokes no memories

  2. Wow...these are some very introspective poems...really digging deep into the human experience of pain, struggle and suffering....thank you for sharing...
