I Will Never Kiss Those Lips

Well there you are
I have slithered into the wrong home tonight it seems
I sniffed out the repugnant ward and I don’t like what I see
You were magnificent in the face of all beholding you
But your conceit is a trap that even I, the snake, have fallen into
You mask yourself with humility
You compliment me to gain
Begging for the summer rain
Begging for the words that would settle your brain
You got it
But instead it rained on me
Showering me with dangling promises
As typical as can be
Empty
These words so execrably wasted on you
As if for a moment I could even dare CRAVE a poem for you
I do not hate you
I cannot love you
At times I do not know what to feel
Why do you do this? 
Put on a show and hope someone will notice? 
Do you want a nice pat on the back?

I am armless; I am all but muscle and scales
I am a dead carcass and yet you continue to compliment
The beauty of my revulsion 
I hold it to my heart
This trap you set 
I helped you set it right from the start
And you have forced upon me the mere THOUGHT of you
Taking away from my bitter lines 
What empty necessity I have turned out to be
Some kind of trophy coiled around your feet
Walking all over me

I’ve hissed and I’ve hurled insult 
And the rain pitter-pattered my distain
You rested knowing I would remain
You needed reassurance
You always needed GAIN

Well I’ll tell you
This serpent is drained
And oh how I hiss
I will not change into that typical mistress
That settles your conscience with a kiss
You will not have me 
I will never kiss those lips

For you are as fake as can be
And not even a snake like me
Will help you in the deceiving
As everyone watches your show
The only one truly believing
Is YOU 

Don’t hesitate out the door
I’ll swallow you whole

    Charming acrimony Laura - you present the great serpent as an adversary worth convincing of embracing alligence - sometimes what seems to be a fake is the whisper of truth's honor - 'Some kind of trophy coiled around your feet..' I enjoy'love/hare relationships - super maturity in this write Laura, surely a FAV. - J.A.B. %

    And oh how you hiss, Laura!...Lethal venom in every line and I hope that poor fool heeded your warning and ran for that door (Or did you swallow him whole first?) In my humble opinion, this is by far your best effort - Tim

    Wow! That is really something...A very strong and painful write. Were the capital words meant to be shouted in a way? And I certainly hope you don't think of yourself as an empty necessity?

    How nice that the truth is exposed quickly. Fool me twice--shame on me! You are quite the passionate one! When a woman takes on the form or image of a snake we are in a powerful realm that is also a confusing one--in a good way. This reminds me of the medusa in mythology. I would not want to be on your bad side!

    This had a hard sting. Dark, yet honest. This had heart, but the heart was fed-up in these lines. Intense work!
