Tetanus

One of my only attempts at rhyme.  God, I get melodramatic when I'm upset.

Shattered glass--I heard the sound,
And saw the image, in my mind--
A serpent 'round an angel wound:
Love and Death close intertwined.

Like Höder, with his sharpened dart,
Took his brother Balder's life,
I had to go and break your heart,
Blindly twist the rusty knife.
