Two Holes

Bitterness is a venomous snake,

A fanged, scaly predator

That slowly seeks to penetrate the vulnerable soul

As green poison drips from its sharp fangs

 

Bitterness is two holes in the pierced soul

From malicious daggers of a serpent

A throbbing, sickly hurt

That stays and stays inside

 

Bitterness is a greedy want for passionate revenge

Never sweet, never satisfied

The rotten taste of over-ripened fruit,

That lingers like melancholy thoughts on the tongue

 

A heart that hates

A clenched fist that despises

The gnashing teeth that loathe

A gaze that detests

Bitterness is a heartless venomous snake

Seeking to slowly penetrate the soul

Very nice. The imagery is wonderful, I really enjoy your opening stanza and the use of the repeated but slightly changed line "Bitterness is a heartless venomous snake" at the end.
