Silently slithering


So there is a snake

Silently slithering

Across sun and stars,

Swallowing centuries

Since the stellar smiles;

Some say someone

Or something sentient

Sent said serpent

So as to seek something.

It started small and sickly,

Somewhere silent and somber,

Feasting on sadness, sorrow,

Sincerely pursuing,

Selfishly consuming

Lost souls and spirits,

Subsequently swelling,

Such as someday

Sooner than expected,

Searching for something else,

Somehow seeing the sea

Should sooth the soul of the beast.

Surely this shall be so and save us.
