Kiss of the Cobra

Kiss of the Cobra

A Poem by KeeD

Like a nineteenth century painting

depict me fainting

Into poisonous detail

Show the audience I’m frail

 

Within the sanctity of your opera

re-enact the kiss of the cobra

the final act plays out

close the curtain and seal their doubts

 

For I lay my soul onto your pasture

slither over me with all your rapture

Upon your venomous embrace

I feel the numbness of my face

 

Once your star attraction

Now a fatal subtraction

Envy shades the midnight sky

The cobra kissed me goodbye

A cobra kiss. Maybe your last.

Now a fatal subtraction
Envy shades the midnight sky

Kee,
Wow... just wow! I feel like 2020 is the cobra! At least that is how this year feels it is going. Like a deadly poison. A venom that is ready to just inject us all! Venomously penned!
