Talking Scales

Your tongue it curves and twists

Arches back and strikes

a beating heart

Your venom it releases

the black silk of shallow words

Your jokes they stab

they mutilate

constrict raw skin

pull tight and suffocate

You deceiver

You cheater

You seether

Suck poison from blue veins

like juice from ripened fruit

to fuel your lagging heart
