Ouroboros~ by Lisa Brandel
Mired soul, immovable in body and mind.
The constrictors coils flexed a back broken
Unhinged jaws swallowed your willing spirit.
With your permission, digested
Became that thing that killed your spirit
Ruined your sincerity fusing mutiny
In your veins.
You never passed through these moments
Caught in the gullet of the beast you hate
You have become the viciousness
You grew up loathing.
Breaking others as you were
Swallowing hope, innocent souls
Calling yourself redeemed
Swaddled in the scaled deceit
Of the moment
You never left
