This piece is dedicated to my two-legged spider… With love!
An icon of fear and fascination, the spiders have always been and remain to be,
Masters of attack and mimicking, once they have gotten a hold of you, you’ll never be free!
Amongst the hairy-legged predators, your powers to seduce have shone,
Waiting so patiently to devour me after my emotions were fully grown!
Extending your limbs lazily, yet determined to capture me as your prey,
Entering my soul with your toxic fangs, paralyzing my logic day by day!
Wrapped up in your silk promises of having a family once upon a dream,
Brought closer to your nest, no words to say, no voice to scream!
Caught in the glimmering web of your love, bedazzled by its charms,
Forgetting the world outside and ignoring your venom’s harms!
Expelling your digestive enzymes to liquefy my will of steel,
Too hungry for authority, too selfish to know how I feel!
Sucking the remains of my love to you and the leftover fluids of my heart,
Consuming what’s left of me to feed your inflated ego and rip me apart!
