Snake

In my life, I stream along
. . . . . curving and twisting
. . . . . . . hiding and fighting
. . . . and sometimes
. . . . . . Pushing hard to remove the past
. . . . . . . . I find a new layer
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . a new skin
. . . . . . . .new colors and dreams

I am harmless
With a nasty bite

. . . . . . My skin is tough

. . . . . . . . . holding everything within
. . . and I think
. . taking a long time to digest.

There are moments I’d like to savor
. . . . . . . . . .Slowly taken
. . . . . . . . . . .until they are part of me
. . . . . . . . internal
. . . . . . .not lost
. . . .when I shed a new skin

. .. . . . . . Let me take you in. . . . . . . . . . fight you. . . . . . .. . . . .protect you. . . . . . . . . and. . . . . let me take you in. . . . . . . . so that you may strengthen me. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . support me. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . complete me. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . I am a snake. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .My life streams along. . . . . . . . . . . . slowly. . . . . . . . .fighting. . . . . . changing
