I am scorpion

By unusual_blood

I am scorpion
poisoning your every thought
with words
you cannot ignore

I am scorpion
my hatred forming slowly
untill
it is so obious
that it burns through your skull

I am scorpion
feeling your every
shiver
down my spine
sensing the cold
that so suddenly covers every inch
of your body
creating a blanket
of stinging ice

I am scorpion
Looking every bit the
opposite
of what you represent
I am
strong
I am
proud
I am
fearless
to the end
I can smell your weakness
inhale
your fear
i can see the
terror lurking
in your soft shy eyes
A deep darkness shades
the only light you ever
came to know
causing you to stumble
over every step you come upon

I am scorpion
Creeping in and out
of houses filled with
young sweet laughter
and haunted by ancient ghosts
still mourning in pain

I am scorpion
I cast an image
in your every thought
I haunt your
every dream

I am scorpion
I sting your innocent heart
I feel the blood
flowing in your
veins

I am scorpion

    You definately captured the negative traits of the scorpian. Your commanding tone gave this piece life beyond words. I'll have to mark this one up as a favorite. Being a scorpian, I found myself able to relate.
