Behind your ear

The snake tangles 


Herculean protection

Hisses, twists, and turns


Pain in suffocatation

Not by my doing


I scream 



Heed no word from desperate calls

That lunatic has you on strings


But strangle you had not my deed

Manipulation by your own heed


Delusions accompany your sleep


Light will shine

One fine day


Like that night

I broke 

In melancholy


My undoing
