Just felt like posting this poem I wrote some time ago. It's nothing special, but I like it. I happened to find it while looking for something in my writing folder and thought I'd share.

Medusa

Thick smoke tinted
with cherry-lime incense
flavors my shallow breath.
Velvet floors
caress my naked feet.
I'm drawn in;
My body is not my own.
Shimmering scales
catch my eye.
Snakes are sliding
in-between the shadows.
Somewhere behind
the hidden veil
and the mist,
she calls.
Beckoning to turn
my heart to stone.
