Held in darkest corner web
She weaves her spell on him
Waiting for his surrender
To her restless whim

Deep within her wanton breast
Is a stifled voice from her past
Heeding not the reason within
She takes him as her repast

Devoured by her hunger
He sees clearly his own fate
She rips apart his fragile world
Black widow spider was his mate

this---is exactly ME, twenty years ago.

Remarkable insight you have deVine one.

You see, after an "incident of assault" I became very promiscuous. That's not even the word, actually. PREDATORY SEX describes it better.

It became a power play for me, and I was like the war veteran, slashing trophies via body parts. (um, not literal folks)

I hope you know how really good this is.

If not, write me, and we will argue.



excellent in this train of thought

smiling

you amaze me yanno.

You make me believe it's personal. EVERYTIME.

Ah, the official insect for the National Organization of Women and Gloria Steinham: the black widow spider. *cackle*

I have always loved the American Indian's idea of Spider Woman (or She of the web.) "She" is the all powerful woman who creates from a central source. One day it is She who will pull all of her creation - back to her source. Her web represents the grids or matrix of our reality.  

I like to think of myself as one of these, and no one can tell me different

Here's a link for you to see where I am coming from here and I adore the graphic.  By the way, got the idea yet?  I loved this one by the way.

Haha, this is appropriate for Halloween.  The poem is written almost as a riddle, but it ends more clearly.  The second stanza, with its mysterious rememberance of the past instances in which this spider devoured her loved ones was well done.
