The Snake That You Are Poem by LeeAnn Azzopardi

The Snake That You Are

Rating: 4.9

The snake slips out of its skin
but never changes
Its tongue makes me nervous
But it's harmless
Its teeth--the venom is
What you watch for
You're the snake that I fear now
My stomach pain increases
With the thought of yr love
Yr poison is yr tongue--and touch
And when I behead you
I will peel yr skin to find yr soul
And make a robe of vengence with it

Your poem deals with true emotions of a lover who betrays and keep doing again and again. The only way to get rid is to pierce through and keep safe distance. A thought provoking poem, Full *******

Betrayal, with venom in the teeth… Snake slips out of its skin, but never changes… because venom is in its soul… Fantastic poem, soulful. Top score, LeeAnn

I feel betrayal, disappointment, anger and vengeance embedded n this poem. Love betrayal can be very painful to generate vengeance. Beautiful poem

My late daddy ate snake meat during wartime, I was not born yet, he said it tastes like chicken meat. BTW An excellent poem, dear LeeAnn. TOP Marks!

Believe me. I know people like this. / I will peel yr skin to find yr soul / And make a robe of vengence with it / Unfortunately in real life we seldom get the chance to do this. Great poem.
