Lifted above ethics

I become immortal

Water splashes at my bare feet

Cold chills me

Pluck a poisoned apple

(from the snakes fang)

I've been waiting here so.long

Numb with time

Blood drained by.a.kiss

(from venomous lips)

pale and wanting

I steal to keep breath in my (open) mouth

I become immortal

Standing.so.long

In these frozen waters.
