Said the Spider to the Fly (Prose-Story)

Updated on February 27, 2013

Spider and the Fly (prose)

Spider and the Fly

The Spider and the Fly

There was definitely a reason for the fly to land in that location

A (reason) no doubt!

Maybe there was another fly

he was strongly attracted to.

One would never know why the spider lured with such enticement.

When the fly arrived she saw

the beautiful invertebrate insect, the spider.

It seemed the fly was delectable

and coming at the right time to feast on.

The eight legs of the spider stretched

as if it could not sustain itself.

First it must toy with the fly,

although it had already captured it.

The spider asked the fly into his web

read the fly his poetry.

Although while listening to the deep intelligence of the spider

The fly knew it was about to be devoured.

Willingly it stood in the web.

Even trying to escape,

the fly knew its desire to be devoured would keep her there

When the spinet of the spider touched her

the fly submitted to be his delicacy.

It was eaten with such ravishment,

the excitement of the experience

was beyond any control the fly had.

What she didn’t know was

the spider’s appetite was uncontrollable.

Anything in his web was taken

and put to whatever use the spider wanted.

Later, (the fly’s spirit) told the spider that

she knew when she entered that it would be her fate to be devoured

The spider showed her a derisive smile

The fly knew there would be no escape even in spirit from his web.

Even if she managed to leave its silky threads would cling to her body

After the fly was devoured she knew her remains would be cast away

Maybe someday, the spider will be starved

and experience the sensation of starvation.

The fly knew the spider would come back for the remains.

Until that time comes

she is left with a disfigurement and a beautiful experience.
