Spider Lover

Spider Lover


blissful couples

walking hand in hand

unexpectedly awaken

thoughts of you


sticky strands of sorrow

strangle my breath

an intricately woven

web of grief

snares me



I thought the

sunny day

the cotton candy

the good company

would keep me safe

my heart flails about

desperate to escape

but


is bound

by spine

ribs

memory


tendrils of what used to be

wrap ‘round and ‘round and ‘round

the suffocating pain of the past

strangling the joy of the present


how could I forget

you are always there

crouching

in the shadows of my mind


slowly eating me alive
