Hour 23: A Stinging Kiss

You might have been my best friend

I was toxic from the start

You could not stomach me

Now I’m your worst enemy

 

You coiled too tightly in the end

Spitting bile all the while

So I bit you and you’re poison now

You’re poison just like me

 

You may have been a good man

Now I’m evil in your eyes

A serpent’s hiss, a stinging kiss

You let your guard down and I ran

 

You want to wreck me like I wrecked you

But I’m immune to my disease

I stuck my fangs into your heart

And now you’re poison just like me

 

Now you twist the others who try

To suck my venom from your veins

They touch your lips and die

Unwitting Juliettes attracted to your pain

 

I bit you and you’re poison now

You’re poison just like me

The End
