Poison - Poem by Squizzle Jellyfish

You could have killed me
Without a fight;
I was too addicted to you
To care anymore.

Since that first time
I saw the demons
In your eyes…
I knew I couldn’t
Let you go.

With my heart beating fast
And my head in the clouds,
I surrendered myself to you
Again and again.

The familiar pain of
Teeth piercing flesh
And the shock of
Your ice-cold hand
Squeezing my throat
Gripping it tighter.
Can’t breathe again.

Guess the monster got the
Better of you.
Guess neither of us
Could resist.

The slightest miscalculation
On your part
Could kill.

Trusting you was a bad idea,
And now I can’t move…
Too late to choose.

Your inhuman eyes glittered maliciously
When you whispered
“I love you”
And now I’m scared

All I ever wanted was
The truth.

And now I’ve seen the real you.
The side no one else knows about.
Our little secret.
The one you would kill to keep.

So I’ll take it to my grave
When the time comes.
A fifty pound weight
To bear on tiny shoulders
Until then.

I guess I didn’t get enough of your poison to die.
So I’m coming back one last time.
One last visit to the monster.

I recall
His command to surrender
The all-too-familiar shock.
Two fangs seek out my jugular.
A scarlet rush…
Then everything fades to black

- - -

In an instant,
In human eyes turn human.
The monster has died.

And the boy sheds a tear
