Powerless. Sensation gone.
All feelings left to fold.
Venomous…the sharpest tongue
by which a beauty’s lulled.
Numbed by tender nothingness
to kill off all the pain.
Desensitize a helpless soul for
you were set to gain.
An anesthetic touch of skin
from a constricting beast.
Poisonous and incomplete
until on my heart you feast.
