memory of a snake bite

we were three
She,you and me.
Around a table
in a cozy restaurant
silent we sat
sipping soft drinks.
The waiter returned
with order for snacks.

Unlike any other day
in the same place
today we were
searching words
to ease
the atmosphere.
We smiled
very unusual.

Only she knew
what we had
in our minds.
Only she knew
what we were
about to tell
to each other.
She looked
little uneasy.
I could predict
no snake around.
Only I remember
for me it was
very important
to let you know
how important
you were
in my life.
For me it was
a must
to let you know
how badly I was
needing you.
I was restless
worried nervous.
I was all set
to let you know
I loved you.
I did not apprehend
a snake was
hissing around.
I told you
I was getting
dependent on you
I told you
it would be hard for me
to live without you.
I told this
I told that
but before you smiled
I could not tell
the simple thing
that I loved you.
The snake by now
entangling my throat
took a perfect position
to enter its teeth.
You told
while you smiled
that nothing as such.
happened to you
or going to happen.
The snake poured
venom into my veins
drop by drop.
