The Snake That You Are Poem by LeeAnn Azzopardi

The Snake That You Are

Rating: 5.0


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

A snake is a snake always. It can change the outer layer of its skin. But the venom inside will remain fatal for ever.

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 *******

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.

"And when I behead you I will peel yr skin to find yr soul And make a robe of vengence with it". Not a good day to be a snake! !
