The Snake…

Words of love ring hollow
as the snake winds up my leg
“there is no pain in my bite”
hhhiiiisss…..
“close your eyes and come with me”

As a child I can not escape
the serpent moves so fast
my mind races in the fog…
faster and faster and faster

up under my shirt it moves
faster
across my chest…
faster
scales against bare flesh
faster
dry and cold
faster
coils wrapping around me…
faster
squeezing me…
faster

and all the breath and words
I can not release
will remain stuffed deep inside me
as the snake now moves lower…
slowly
and lower…
slowly
and lower…
slowly
and lower…
slowly
my God…
slowly
the snake coils around my waist
mouth open and tongue flickering
bite…

Today - though I bare no marks
from tightening coils or pearly white fangs
the snake’s actions remain
…a slow acting venom
that still courses through my veins

Now I've cried myself to sleep
on many a dark night
wondering why the snake bit me…
struggling to see the light

It has taken years for me
to finally realize
it wasn't me who tempted the snake
he brought the snake to me
he set the snake upon me

Kelly,

Harrowing and courageous. I heard and felt every word.

Much love,
Larry
