Lord Of SnakesLORD OF SNAKES
Cunning and malicious
Like a coiled viper he poises
To strike at his unfortunate prey
Wide yellow penitrating orbs
Pupils not but narrowed slits
Splitting the hypnotic orbs with a strand of black
Gleaming in the pale light
Twin ivorys bristling with the liquid death within
Contracted around and all too flexable skeleton
Like an arrow he launches freely into an effortless arch
The soundless motion
Broken by a brief, sharp squeal
Piercing the hollow blackness before
The satisfied hiss of a serpent rises and falls
The lord seeking out new prey

With all the pain you've endured
My lips will take away the suffering, the memories
We can replace them with our own, ones to last forever
I'm not perfect, I never will be
But we may have a chance
A chance at the love we've always wanted
The love I know you deserve
I've waited years for this
For them to say the words
To realize this is what I need
I hope they don't pass it up
If you don't mind...
Kiss me, hold me, never let go
We may only get one chance at this...
Please, let's live it right
I'm not going to give up on you
I won't hurt you, not like the rest
You've broken me in half, torn me in two
The thing is...
You are forgiven
I'm going to do whatever I need to,
I'll try my best...
Forgive me if this doesn't happen
But darling, regardless, I'm not done loving you

I, a seamstress, nimble-fingered with sharp eyes and steady hands,
weave threads of trust into needlepoint and eyelet lace;
fasten hope like pins and buttons; delicately embroider faith
into the trains of gowns, which you will be careless to destroy;
trailing hems through dirty city streets while playing hard to get.
You. Slovenly. Drunken. Whore.

This time we kissed
It was between me and her
For once, I won
The kiss was beautiful
Soft and sweet, the way it should be
The way it could be
He didn't know who to choose
I said "make a list, tell me how to be perfect"
He made one, filled with six
All of them silly
It didn't matter
I cried and cried
So I made him one too
All it said was a few simple words
You are perfect exactly the way you are
His jaw dropped, he was left totally confused
All he could do was kiss me
And so that's what he did

Sweet dreamer take a kiss
White roses with bloody tips
Hugged to your hips
Wrap yourself in coil
Lather and soak
Slither and stab
Circles in your eyes
She hides her feelings behind
Black lace and red lipstick
Clothed in a maiden of innocence
White roses cradled in her arms
Lover with a fatal heart
Took a leftover and created something new
Heartache for treasure
It isn't funny anymore
Sleep with a cross at your chest
Scare away the monsters you hate
With a misunderstood heart
Nobody ever knew
Her name was Lolita
She touched with white roses
Hiding her feelings behind broken glass
And rambling about the times
Life has made her the mistake

He broke it.
He's all a girl could ever ask for.
A proper gentleman,
With a pretty cute smile.
Everything I wanted.
Opening up didn't go so good.
I told him everything.
My love is undying.
He doesn't care.
Our friendship is all that matters.
To him, that is.
That boy means the world to me.
He always will.
But now, I lay here heartless.
Trying, fighting, not to cry.
