The Council And The Devil - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

They are like poisonous snakes
that never stop biting
etching their venom
deep within your soul

I feel crystallized tears
of my mothers past
like jagged edges
tearing through my flesh

It's like a never ending
time machine going back
to where it all began
like your trapped in the same day
over and over again

    A Wonderful poem with in-depth meaning. Beautiful lines...
    They are like poisonous snakes
    that never stop biting
    etching their venom
    deep within your soul......Very true said in few lines. They are never going to change...They will just keep on trapping others. Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem. (Report) Reply
