I hold you and caress you
for the glittering serpent you are.
I kiss you as you bite me,
spreading your sweet poison.
I love you as you choke me
and destroy all I am.
And as your sharp fangs sink deeper into my soul,
I cling to you tighter for you have become dearer than
Your sparkling eyes entrance me with promises
Yet all you offer is a draught of loneliness.
Still, I cannot break away from you.
I drain my cup of isolation and beg for me.
And you offer me more as you wrap yourself tighter;
I become numb to your poison as I drink my misery.
And I cling to you, my devilish friend,
For you are all I have left.
