Serpentine

P1010771

You are the charmer and I am the snake
Your eyes shine gold, your heart is fake
My tongue is forked but yours is cut
I pass my nights in baskets shut

Always swaying to your lilting song
In minor key, I’m lulled along
You tote me across the desert fires
And frigid nights when suns expire

No audience observes this dance
Just you and I, the painful trance
Your eyes shine gold, your heart is fake
You are the charmer and I am the snake
