Teeth - 12/16/2011

I watch the light
caught in the tears
clinging to my lashes
looking like diamonds
fooling you with
my supposed innocence.
I might catch you
in my web
wrap my claws
round your heart
or hold it
between my fingers
like a seed.
Take the strings
of your heart
ever so gently
between my teeth
and unravel them
with my tongue.
Drag you out
into the warmth
of my pretended
only to crush you
rip you
drop you
back into the dark.
This isn't justice
or revenge.
This is me
playing the game
that so many others
have played with me
and I am playing to win.
