Serpent’s Disguise

Reptilian scales shifted

Like sequins shimmering

Beneath the pellucid flesh

Of your mouth

Mesmerizingly twisted

With benevolent charm

Shrouding malevolent gleams

Of fangs behind your perfect

Cupid’s bow

Holding back the arrow

Of your split tongue

Dipped in silver

Slithering smooth

Over sultry rhyme

Almost hypnotizing reason

Pierced through the heart

But the venom

Only sharpened sense

To unmask the serpent

Crawling the agate slits

Of your gentle eyes
