A Serpent's Lullaby

When… we crawl about your dreams,
we prevent your wake, or so it seems;
Constricting rest, ingesting sleep
to mark your souls to claim and keep.
We demon snakes, then lie and wait,
as soul AND flesh... now ours to take
in unhinging jaws so our bones don’t break;
            unconscious, you can"t know your fate;
            and if you know... you won’t escape.

I like your poems. It’s something I wish I could do. Better at working with my hands. My mouth usually just gets me into trouble.

:-) Harriett L Randall replies: "Thank you...and what you do with your hands in your art is really beautiful."

Utter coolness. Nice rhyme to this - I can’t EVER write good rhyming poetry.

:-) Harriett L Randall replies: "Wow...thanks; it took me a while to learn."

Neat poem, like an opposite to the familiar child’s bedtime prayer.

:-) Harriett L Randall replies: "Thanks again."

I can imagine this one read in a sinister voice, hissing in the night. That would be enough to keep me awake.

:-) Harriett L Randall replies: "lol. Yeah, that’s how it sounded when I wrote it."
