I'd rather be sorry for something that I did than for something I didn't do.
-Red Scott


It waits until you’re almost asleep
And croons to you with its nightingale voice
Lulling, caressing, fondling
As it turns its scaled visage away
Cowering if your eyes are open

But if they’re not,
Beware
Stranger, beware
Of mustard gas
Of poppy seeds
Of anacondas
Which as you stroke them
Wind their tails around your neck


The author's comments:
This is pretty dark...even for me. Utterly perplexed as to where this came from... Mind those anacondas, will you?

Thank you. My writing does sometimes lean toward the creepy side... (and you're welcome, I was waiting for something to show up :)

This is kinda dark. But great! I love how you have to stop and think about it. Some great things have to be a little creepy :) Keep it up! and thanks for commenting on my work!

Thanks, and you're welcome. I'm really glad that you like it. It was getting a little depressing that this poem was not getting any responses.

I really like this poem. It seems kinda dark, but it also really makes you think. It's very interesting! Thanks for reading and commenting on my poem, too!
