Cobra Kisses

Thought I'd give it a go at writing some poetry influenced by Sylvia Plath's style. I liked the way it turned out, let me know what you think and I'll gladly return some feedback!

1. Cobra Kisses

Atlantic ocean eyes

Not blue

Stare back at you

 

Ice cream mind

On a July day

It’s always been that way

 

Picked apart tales

Find truth

In these lies

 

Your Hemingway hands

Reset the typewriter

 

It’s not fiction you speak

But reality

A story I cannot read

 

My cheeks

Like the cherry on top

Scarlet,

Flustered, clumsy,

 

Puppet legs give out,

Tumble down

Along with a tired heart

 

Soften the blow,

Strong arms do more

Good than harm

 

Despite this,

Your fever warmth

I will not sweat out

 

A hundred ten degrees

But the chills

Caress my skin

 

Your Alaskan organs

Titanic eyes

Not life-size

& Cobra kisses

 

Bitter will and

Poisonous venom

Flow to my veins

 

Boa constrictor hugs

I hold tight

I fight back
