a limbless spider entangled in
its own web,
writhing and awaiting to
break free—

only to be devoured by the fly.
My feelings at the moment in a nutshell.

By the way, I have severe arachnophobia.

You paint this beautifully with your words. It's short, painful and to the point -- lovely work.

The title really made this poem for me. A magnificent vignette :heart:

I like spiders, actually. That causes lots of my friends to yell, "GET AWAY YOU CANT BE TRUSTED SPIDERS ARE EVIL WHY DO YOU WHYYYYYYYYY." when i tell them that. I hope that made you smile. :) but its true. Seriously.

Unf... But... But... Spiders can't get caught in their own webs...

I'm sorry. I'm sure you knew that. It doesn't matter; this obviously isn't literal >.<

I'm sad and a bit worried you feel that way... I don't know what's going on, but I hope things get better... because that doesn't sound like a good place to be :(

Of course it's not literal. But it's a good image.

I hope things get better too.

I'm terrified of spiders, too.

It's ironic, but deep as well. I like it very much... but it makes me worried for you. Are you alright?

That's... dark. I'm sorry you feel that way.
And if it helps, you could imagine the spiders being eaten by dragon clowns! You couldn't possibly be afraid of them after that!

...but I'm terrified as clowns even more so, and imagining dragons (something I love) merged with them...

Then how 'bout giant birds that eat anything made up as clowns! And also spiders. :meow:

I had a spider-encounter at a young age that changed my mind about spiders CX

Wow, I read this several times and each time it becomes more and more lovely.
I think it's very chilling and heartbreaking at the same time....

Thank you very much. It's supposed to be chilling. Especially since I imagined myself as the spider, and I have a severe fear of them.
