When Snakes Dream

ghoulia4

The snake did nest in her mouth

it’s poison at away at her skin

nothing covers her aged bones but lies and smoke and sin

 

The snake did nest in her mouth

it’s forked tongue pierced her brain

no thoughts live in her skull just stories of what had been

 

The snake did nest in her mouth

it slithered its way to her heart

she wants to love she wants to live but the snake has its own dreams now.
