With shine in the eyes turning saline
And the tongue malign
Creaking into the cracks poison finally seeps in
One ultimate deafening thump and the heart gives in.
Slithering out the soul lies numb yet showing lief.
It lapses into time, yet not into relief
Remembers days bygone.
Where once upon a time it heralded its own malison
Time makes destiny spool another day.
