fangs

{are there serpents in your heart?}
{do they whisper to you, seethingly}
{venom is the only love you have?}

I had never known a love so consuming

that could envelop me in bliss, in ecstasy

and I had never known a knife so sharp

as the one concealed behind your tongue

{sink your fangs in, numb my heart}
{then swallow me whole, eat me alive}

I owe you nothing but my wounded back

and you owe me nothing but another lie

the only one I ever wanted to hear, and now

the paperweight that rattles in my rib cage

{I still love you, and I always will}
{
I hear them hissing on every word}
