Favorite Quote:
"Adventure is worthwhile in itself." - Amelia Earhart

Green Mamba you crawled in
Suffocated my heart
I run from you –
But your scales mesmerize
Hypnotized you coil and whisper in my ear
“You only belong to me” then slither away
Viper poison made me blind-
I cannot see the light
Bites and scars cover me
Fruit of Eden consumed
Lost in a canopy of darkness, other snakes come to bite
But only one sting always pains;
Never leaves, but lingers and stays-
Sting of Green Mamba, my monster, my sin.

The author's comments:
It is often difficult to forget our sometimes troubled pasts. Our regrets become our "green mambas" taking vicious bites to remind us of our mistakes, controlling us. The green mamba robs us of our innocence and how we view the world.
