Snake

 

Snake strikes your thoughts

Pierces your composure

And delivers venom to churn inside

 

A torrential river of poison

Eroding all calmness

Your paralysed body is still

 

It coils its shape around you

Crushing every pleasurable moment

Relentless and unforgiving

 

It survives in the head

Of those who believe

Deserters from the truth

 

It feeds on anguish and indecisions

Seizing targets

As quick as thoughts appear

 

Snake. Are you frightened now?
