writing as Sapphire Rose

Curious, I crept into the bush
where a viper lay waiting,
poised and ready to strike.

He lunged and thrust forward,
and I felt his fangs penetrate
deep into my body.

As his body coiled around
mine, warmth swept over me,
yet inside I became cold.

With each successive pump,
I could feel his venom
flowing through my body.

My own blood now mixing
with his poison, I slowly
feel myself dying.

Slipping away, my body
remains, but now merely
a shell.

the viper slithers off
to find his next victim.
