Serpent’s Kiss


Lips as red as Eden’s apple

And twice as attractive

Filled with the knowing

Full and extractive


Where whispered the words

Sweet as a winter wine

That feed my smitten soul

And beg me there to dine


Just one short taste

Seems it could do no harm

I lean to meet your smile

Succumbing to your charms


And like a flash of lightning

In that momentary bliss

I willing give up heaven

For the fire that is your kiss


If Hades be the demanded cost

To burn away the original sin

Then kiss me one more time, my love

And let the burning begin
