The Words

Location

The words stung

Like a poisonous bite

Of a mangling serpent

Meandering through my tangled veins

Infecting the red blood that flowed

 

My heart flooded with the envenomed streams

Leaking into my mind

Drowning my dreams

Words 

 

The streams fused with my thoughts

Intoxicating my truth

Paralyzing by body

Words

 

The venom lingered in my heart

Numbed my veins

Robbed my soul

It became my truth

And took my control
