My Monster, My Sin

By earthycrunchychic, Canton, MI

Green Mamba you crawled in
Suffocated my heart
I run from you –
But your scales mesmerize
Hypnotized you coil and whisper in my ear
“You only belong to me” then slither away
Viper poison made me blind-
I cannot see the light
Bites and scars cover me
Fruit of Eden consumed
Lost in a canopy of darkness, other snakes come to bite
But only one sting always pains;
Never leaves, but lingers and stays-
Sting of Green Mamba, my monster, my sin.
