Favorite Quote:
"Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much." -Oscar Wilde

With golden fangs and fire eyes
And my skin of only black
I whisper fear in all human ears
Though beauty, I do not lack.
I may be shy, to the sun's watchful eye
But I bathe in the moonlight's grin
They scream in terror, but gasp in awe
Whenever I slither in.

With golden fangs and fire eyes
I am lethal to every creature
My poison black and my smile shallow
The dark, my faithful teacher.
I kill with grace and devour
As soon as my fangs sink in
I make death easy for my prey
Under the moonlight's grin.

With golden fangs and fire eyes
And determination in my bones
They scream in terror, but gasp in awe
Yet they never make it home.

The author's comments:
This poem is about a snake. Most people, including myself, are afraid or disgusted by snakes. A lot of cultures have described snakes as lowly creatures, but I was inspired by their ironic, lethal gracefulness and their brutal determination.
