Crocodile Tongue

Location

Acid drips from the lips

and the teeth snarl and my stomach churns

As fear bubbles

drip

d...r...i...p

your tongue clicks

acid rolling off your syllables of lies

my eyes roll backwards

and the black ooze plinks

plink

p...l...i...n...k

it bubbles and melts the floor

just like you did my heart

at one point…

but no more do your lies convince me

no more does your acid burn me into submission

I am free

and you are lost
