The Snake and the Girl

Source

The Beginning...

The snake seemed so beautiful

With his vibrant colors

And his empowering strength

The girl could not resist him

He had charmed her with his ways

His coils ravaged her and gave

Her the excitement that she was missing

He told her that he loved her

That he would take care of her

And never let her go

The Beginning of the End

She loved bathing in the love of the snake

Every day she would wait for him

Then the snake started changing

He started manipulating her

Making her believe she was someone she wasn't

She loved the snake so much that she wanted to believe him

Even though it was against what she believed

He started taking a piece of her everyday

Hurting her everyday

Each day that he did

He would become stronger

While he was killing her slowly

She was in this deep trance for awhile

Unaware of what was happening

The whole time becoming weaker

Dying slowly from within

The End

Then one day

She snapped out of it

A rage came over her

She was almost too weak to get up

She left the snake

But he found her again

The snake crept in

Took her away again

She tried to hide

But he knew every corner

He knew where to find her

She could not stay away

The snake could always

Sense her innocence

Of the girl when she hid

She almost became mad

From trying to run away

He would always find her

And slowly start killing her again

She decided to kill the snake

That was the only way to get away

She had to be more clever than the snake

She waited for him that day

She would cut off his head

So he couldn't hurt her anymore

But he never came back that day

He found someone else to slowly kill

LOL I assume we're talking human snakes. Don't know which I despise more the poisonous real ones or the despicable human ones. You got me all shook up. Great way with words and brought on the shivers.

A beautifully written piece I understand word for word . I hear you.

And it's from those seemingly unstoppable advances to either take over your body mind and spirit , should in each incident bring forth the best in you , that is the time the difference in every individual it shown some will the the easy way out and there is not, they have simply thrown themselves in the dungeon of surrender. While some will set out to kill that which cannot die , we as humans cannot battle with God himself , and some would rnot end that easily , they would remember that original battle in the Garden , it was with that same snake he never died there those men are simply the everyday solders.

As said in the Bible , in the book of Ephesians 6:12.For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Just read to understand , don't let anything invade your mind,while you read, it will try.

Imagine a book which tells you of your life your every problem and solution, created and written long before you were even born. If it was for those people in that day, why is it's manifestations so predominant today . I did not need a church for my research , it was in me to find out. Now I know I can't fool myself.

You are a great person Caroline , this is an incredible life we are living in , you must trust in someone who will never fail, put on the armor that would put you in charge of those dirty snakes. Set yourself free.

This is a principle that anyone can use and they will all see that there is nothing like it.

In John 14:2 Jesus said: In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.

I go to prepare a place for you. That where I am there yee may be also.

Bless Dear Caroline.

A scary piece, Caroline, but I got into it from the first line. Yes, I was pretty sure you were talking about a human snake, and I hope now you are truly safe from him.

C21,

You see I dont think that snake was a snake-snake- but a metaphor for an evil user person who was mean-manipulative and deceitful...It too bad you keep getting mixed up with these fellas that dontsee your worth and value you for you ... As such the snake is a metaphor for

a bad character who stole your heart but more importantly he gurt you and his "bite wounds " ran deep and tingle on occassion maybe when things get too serious you get the feeling all over again...

Well done nicely written...

Hopefully some day you will get a dose of "antivenom"...sometime soon...

Although maybe I am reading WAAAYYYY to much into tis...

Who do I think I am Dr Phil??

Hi Sam thank you! Glad you like it.

LOL T you better be nice to the wife! It's a good thing men age faster than women. It's a beautiful thing. :) (Just kidding) Alleged flecks of grey or bald some women think both can be hot so I wouldn't worry if I were you! And Dr. Phil think he's pretty hot himself too. lol

Caroline, Very powerfully presented! That "snake" might have pulled a no-show because he thought that she was pretty close to being finished off. Those human "snakes" don't always stay around for the final curtain; instead they often move on for the thrill of sinking their fangs into another unassuming victim. I think that the lady in this poem pulls herself together; sad lesson to learn but she triumphed in the end.

Excellent poem which effectively illustrates that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Kind regards, Stessily

I love how easy the analogy of the snake fits the human equivalent. In fact it fits almost too well. LOL. But it underscores the behavior of the snake. I have never experienced a snake before but my heart goes out to any woman who experiences it. Ridding oneself of a snake sounds like it is not easy.
