The Burning Rattle

The petal falls

The thorn breaks

The blood oozes

Upon my battered face


The venom enters

Constricting my airways

Squeezing my lungs

Striking until I break


It bites into me

Pulling my flesh

Gnawing my skin like meat

Trying to swallow me whole







Yet, I won’t let the burning rattle get me

I won’t let the slithering pain consume me

I won’t let the poison control my body

I will fight the clever creature invading my all.
