WICKED WEB

Updated on February 28, 2015

Tangled in your strands of evil

  Camouflaged so no one knows

  Spinnerets producing silk

  Interlacing my body, mind and soul

Spewing patterns of complex texture

  Intricately placed to gain control

  Enmeshed in silence thick with rage

  Must I stay or can I go

Orgasmic intensity

  Dangling from above

  Trying to loosen myself

  From your cocoon of twisted love

The tingly sensation I feel

  Knowing eventually that it will bring

  Weaving hatred onto me

  A spidery, painful, venomous sting

Creeping slowly to break free

  The web so complicated, I cannot see

Be strong, take steps

  Continue to crawl

  I can't get caught

  If I just let myself fall

To the lower level where

  Freedom reigns

  More land to roam around

  Can't get caught in your wicked web

It's safer on the ground.

      Chatkath, thanks for stopping by and commenting. This poem actually was written years ago to accompany a book I started but never completed. I have hundreds of typed pages . . . a dozen or so chapters . . . but no ending, maybe it's time I finish that thing :)

      acaetnna, thanks for stopping by and commenting. I have no doubt that finding a perfect love can't be beaten. It is a matter of being fortunate enough to have found it.

      Hi Sunnie, It was me in a relationship that was difficult to get out of years ago. Really glad that web is gone. Thanks for commenting :)

      I agree love is a complex web, but when the perfect love is found it really can't be beaten. I wonderful poem once again.

      Love is a wicked web weaved, with all its highs and lows.

      We feel its bliss then watch it die, it always comes and goes.

      Tingly sensations can turn to pain, it never seems to end.

      When will we escape its grasp, and fly away, ascend?

      Haha, it's been a while since I left one of those little poem comments :D sorry

      This was a good one. You have that style that I mentioned, that is hard to ignore.

      Up/awesome :]
