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?
