To The Snake

There she lies, lithe and coiled up like a snake.
The brightness of her brownish glow
Deepens the dark hue of the floor.
Here I come to embrace her for the life.
Bye bye green world and goodbye light
Now to the filthy mud and to the night.
Clouds of smoke with a musky smell
Floating in the air, while my heart
Skips a few beat. She shivers at my touch
And I trace the world on her skin.
Far away, some grand-clock as it chimes
Whispers, “The time is fleeting by…”
The sinuous paths that I have walked with love
From hemorrhage turn darker than before.
