Insidious - For Vex.
Insidiously it slides
down icy fingers of trepidation
locking around a fear-frozen throat
Insidiously it slithers
Through bands of white hot vengeance
forging around a heart reeling in disbelief
Insidiously it strikes
Blood in waves across cobblestone floors
Now - Awash in something more
Insidiously it coils
tentacles of poison... seeping, leeching,
unfurling deep within.
How insidious the knowledge
You have been betrayed
by a friend.
For Vex - with fond remembrance of former kindred spirits, hours spent in contemplating the deeper
meanings of life, and the realization that even friendship is too good to last.
