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

~~~
