Unlocking a Key

Updated on January 15, 2014

Key to your heart

Glow in the dark
This love leaves body scars
Without the pain 
Of pulling strings

Electric romance
Addictive narcotic kiss
Her tongue
On my teeth
I love the way
That smile tastes

Tattooed muse
A horned angel
Wrapping her wings 
Around me
As i shed my scales

She bites my neck
To paint the moon red
And places my hands 
On her frozen chest

Shackle the earth
Surround it,
With iron bars

She is,
The warden
I am,
The three armed guard

Each others oxygen

      Electric is the current that brings us all together! Thank you for all of the compliments! I think in many ways we are all serpents and innocent children. It just depends on how we choose to look at things.

      I love the Poem! Yet I wonder???Can a vine hold up a vine or the blind lead the blind? How is this death oxygen? You definitely have me thinking about all of this! Where would this deathly love lead you??? Are you a serpent in this??( Shedding scales??? Lust like passion. Nice work!
