She steeps in silence waking,
Now slumbers in sleep.
She lays,
Seeing her legs out straight,
Her arms spread eagle,
As if to soar above a sea.

She drums now in dreams
She whimpers and whimpers softly
She sees below, in stronger sight
Something to seize her heart in ice.

A snake she sees slithering
Down through the down dewed grass,
She screams her clarion call,
Her mouth moving as if to mourn
One last levitating protest
To declare her enduring domination

She stirs.
One eye opens,
A tongue flicks out
She raises her head
And smiles


Another piece written during high school.  I’d been writing quite a bit of darker stuff, and decided to try my hand at writing something with a little brighter feel to it.  I don’t think I succeeded, do you?
