Verse: The Serpent Repents

(inspired by @joswartz)

The serpent repents
but never relents
intent as he is
on snatching your kiss
he comes slithering in
reeking of sin
determined to ease
you out of your eden
wrapping himself around you
like a tourniquet to
apply some pressure
and when he is through
he licks your blood
from his teeth
and the serpent retreats
yet he never departs
for he knows
his venom
has entered your heart
