I watched your serpentine dance,
Mesmerized, entranced.
Dropping your coils
Down over my heart,
Patched in bright green and sunlight-filtered scales,
Easing their weight forward
Under a compulsion of the jungle itself,
Expanding as they squeezed my heart tighter.
Blood splattered the parched earth.
My last breath surrendered,
Given up to feed
Your momentary need.
Inhaling me,
Your jaw unhinged to
Swallow all I am.
Take your fill,
Drawing me deeper within.
Where once sated,
You regurgitated my bones
Onto the jungle floor,
To be picked over
By any scavenger.
Author's Notes:
My deepest and most sincere thanks to Mr. Pointy, our own beloved
Ross McCague, to whom I owe so much....
Thanks Ross!

pretty good poem i like it

Comment By: FreePaul Peter McLean on October 26, 2006 06:19:00 PM Report
The secret to the power of this poem is the detail you put into the description of the snake, the way it moves, the way it looks, the mesmerising effect it has on anyone who sees it, and especially the way it eats and regurgitates. Lines 8 and 9 and particularly powerful, linking "heart" and "blood", and I like the sudden appearance of the rhyming lines, which have the effect of making the reader pause just long enough to take in the preceding images. Great work.
Comment By: FreeGoliath Assassin on October 9, 2006 03:50:16 PM Report
Wow!  You're just as wonderful without a rhyme scheme at all! Great descriptors, flow, mood... my favorite part was from "down over my heart" to "My last breath surrendered" I felt a little claustro for a moment there!

Jody -  This is a fascinating work,  It is interesting that put youself into the position of a contrictor's prey.  I can envision the corellary between the serpent and prey and someone being swallowed up in the life an needs of another.  Congratulations Jody.

BAM!! And the Sorceress wins again...well not the joust with the snake but the FP award. You had me wriggling in my skin and hiding my eyes, least I watch the dance and fall victim to the same fate. CONGRATULATIONS, this is awesome! =))

A very descriptive feeling of being eatten alive.
Congratulations for winning a Featured Poem Award.

Congratulations on the well-deserved award you Witchy Woman! 

The allure of the "serpentine dance" and the sacrifice of the "last breath surrendered" are vivid to the point of reality.

You did good, young lady :)

Comment By: FreeJ on July 1, 2006 04:12:28 AM Report
And you said my metaphor was good! This is fantastic. I had almost forgotten how great of a writer you are. Almost.
Comment By: FreeThe Mystic Poet on June 29, 2006 11:46:32 AM Report
Well, this sexy serpent has certainly slithered to surround my heart.
Comment By: FreeWide Awake on June 24, 2006 03:23:49 PM Report
Oh my....very...pointy, indeed~

Well said dear lady...sadly truthful, how some people are...

A spades a point calling it anything else hm.

boy oh boy  your writing changed much since I have been away
but it got much deeper and harder hitting
and now you are really my queen on the site of course
good job at making me see how a little mouse feels when
the big bad snake (Chomps) him down

Comment By: FreeTim Fleckney on June 9, 2006 10:33:37 PM Report
I loved this one, it may just be me but it felt like a love poem, as I say it could just be me I've been told I'm a bit twisted.


Comment By: FreeLeonard Wilson on June 5, 2006 06:19:30 PM Report

Comment By: FreeRoger Bacon on June 5, 2006 04:17:33 PM Report
Wow.  Really like the parallel writing here. 
Comment By: PremiumGlata on June 5, 2006 11:35:36 AM Report
Uh....ouch? Sounds like you have been totally squeezed, and not always in the best sense...and I can relate to that!

Great job, by the way!

Hugs...but not the kind that squeeze the life out of ya!

Love you...

My admirers may like to know that I completed the edit assistance in a matter of seconds through

a shape-shifting exericise. I just drew myself close to the man who is pestering her to death right now and strangled. The words just emerged in a primal scream.

Comment By: FreeRoss McCague Rosco on June 4, 2006 05:23:13 PM Report
Now that's intense. I like the finished product better. Hope I don't get any hate mail.
Comment By: FreeRoss McCague Rosco on June 4, 2006 04:05:39 PM Report

Charming. The rebound is equally well-realized and delightful. Curious that the coils didn't get the 'zeroed in on' treatment to match the aesthetic with the emotional horror. I don't know like:

your coils around me,

patched in off-green and wooden-brown sunlight filtered scales,

expanding as they squeezed my heart ever so tighter,

drawing me deeper within


Snake horror etc. graphically rendered with jungle sweat and mysterious eyes in the gloom sort of thing.

Bet you taste sweet J. Brilliant
