I Killed The Snake - Part One
" Because I Love You "
Don't hold your breath too long
for everything you said was wrong,
insulting my love for you, keeps playing over and over like a sad song
am I nothing more than a tease, dirt from your ribs ?
remember Adam, I myself can no longer keep loving you in the third person,
Adam, I seek no justice, I know how to walk these gardens alone
I never asked for your heart, only your company and friendship
every other day fell into place, with love, respect and protection
should you banish me, insinuate things like a God ?
Why do you mock me, and cut me the way others do ?
Adam, your sword is much powerful than mine,
I read your chapter,
you spoke and said you won't walk through The Gardens of Goliath
Adam, does it matter now, your slingshot took me down
I did not mean to tarnish us, or make you feel the apple peel
my heart is not of evil, why do you crucify me, as if I took a second bite ?
I entered a realm, where I knew Adam's Apple would be the best
again, you did not speak, nor set rules with boundries,
as I did when I revealed the name of the Snake, which comes in two
for you I will move on, and be strong, knowing I will long for your touch
as I did before we exchanged our first kiss
I can never undo the bite, however, I can take down the elegance of my words
remove it from the devils dusty path, I wish no harm, nor reminder of what was...
