Venom

October 17, 2010

So acutely aware of endings lately.

It was my fault, really.
I scared you. And you reacted.

The bite stings,
But the slow burn of the venom kills.

But I swallow my tears,
Is that what’s making my throat constrict?

I’ll be the bigger person.
And a slow death is dramatic enough.

Besides,
There’s nothing left to say.

No antidote can cure
a paralyzed heart.
