Lamia

It lives within thin layers
Crawls across the walls and floor
Reverberates in my head
More and more

Create the perfect skeptic, let him
See how long limbs grow, ‘til the
Air turns sick and putrid
Choking through

A spider weaves, beneath
These dying leaves, so shady
I now know when, the ties
Like bones, need time to heal
Rebroken

Fuck that
Fucking grin I see, each time 
I dare to close my eyes
It gives me something new, in life
I feel compelled to despise

Create the perfect skeptic, let him
See how far words go, until the
Air grows thick with actions
Smile through

Then fracture knees, of those
Who try to please, your highness
A snake still breathes, in rafters loft
These words, need time to fade
Once spoken

Love, loss, fear, and loathing
Voice, face, teeth, tongue lapping flies
Though I sit down, I can’t relax
I formed a pact, that’s forming cracks
Now what this is, stands undefined
Bounce back and forth all through my mind

Await another
Innate magnetic pull
Can I, kill the force of deadpan whispers
Can I?

Been here before
Lived here before
All the venom, inside this trap
Is one that I have lain myself
Again

It lives within my skin now
Left its mark upon my brain
To stain the future in its
Coming shame

Create the perfect skeptic, let him
Live through old vow’s throes
While crocodile teardrops
Kill a rose

A spider weaves
A snake still breathes

Poisonous
Fangorious
Venomous
Acrimonious

Beneath these dying leaves, so shady
That small grin fades into
Thin memories forever
