Green Serpent

Green serpent, I danced with you in order to forget,
But alas the memories returned whenever you left,
Just could not manage without your charming threat,
To take me far away from my mind so bereft.

Green magic, I felt the spell that you cast on my life,
And through your spirit I longed for it’s quick relief from strife,
Imbibing your essence till I was left in a trance,
Leaving me in perpetual need of that one final dance.

Green desire, I see you everyday and everywhere I turn,
But penniless there is no reason to stay with me, although I may yearn,
Has your love for me ended, am I now forlorn?
Alone with my sad thoughts, for you I shall morn.

Green Serpent, now I have found new friends at last,
True ones that give happiness and a love so vast,
So if you try to return some day and mess with my head,
Beware that I now dance with others, and will ignore you instead!

  1. Mine was black…first name Jack…long, long time spent with him. If you’re interested, I’ve got a couple of poems(actually a lot more)…but #31 of 365 – “suture” and #50 of 365 – “letters from the universe” are about that. I look forward to reading more of your stuff – and would love your feedback (whatever it may be).

    All the best
