Liquid evil slides,
drips and glids
on the wall
oozing from all corners,
cracks & crevices.
It shapes a snake of demonic proportions
slowely seething towards my unwanting ear.
It enters.

Little by little
bit by bit.

violently invading and destroying
my perfect little dream web.
Conquering each tassle of joy until
suddenly all...

motion stops.

The slithering creature succumbs and surrenders.
But Why?

No visible side opposes the threat.
My web is gone.

Diminished into forboding darkness
the snake coils wrestlessley.

The fighting has ceased.

What silent savior spared my precious dreams?

From within the coils a radiant spider
appears from nothing more than
pure rain, wrapping his wondrous silk golden light
covering all time
trapping easily this pathetic intruder.

The war ended hastily.

My wonderland survived and peace
of mind shall reign.

I have to be honest. I stopped reading at the word "spider" *SHUDDERS* Since I have a terrible fear of them, I don't even want to think about them.  The part of the poem before that was great. Sorry I couldn't finish the rest.

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"

Strange but interesting   I liked the last two lines..
My wonderland survived and peace
of mind shall reign  


 Love is the life of the soul...
It is the harmony of the universe
