Snake in the grass

Staring you in the face
Coiled
Ready to strike

Hidden in the grass
I was perfectly fine
Until you stepped in

Weaving in and out
Of tall figures
Quickly passing by me

I'm locked on you
Ready to bite
Latch onto you

I don't need a threat
For you to come to me
I'm interesting - you have to see

I'd wrap myself
Around you
Squeeze you so tight

I'd have to
taste you
I'd be it would be good

Come here
You wonderful
Little boy

Give me that hug
Give me that kiss
I won't bite -
at least not much

I'm your very own
Sneaky Snake in the grass

Quite a way to use a simile...you put a completely different spin on it, and I like it. Hmm....4.4/5

Oh, there was also an error....this sentence is a bit awkward:

"I'd be it would be good".

Anyways, good job!

Oh, I meant to say "I'd bet it would be good."
