when i was young, a fever gave rise.

it changed forever, a young boy's
eyes.

when i looked in my window, i began to see.

the truths of this, life manifest to me.

as i watched the spiders play,

in there ruthless, wicked way.

a game they never win,

and grow stronger from their sin.

predator some may be but no-longer,living free.

free from the tangled web,that made them,

should it crumble, would enslave them.

Damn! Dark and thoughtful.
I was drawn through it.

This piece captured me with its first two lines, actually, then kept me there. Quite strong, this sinister appeal.

i have to tell you this is a neat concept on life...goes to show if you are not careful with what you do in life..like the spider..you can be caught in your own web! Am i right?

Deep, thought provoking, exquisite!
