Black widow

I am caught again inside your carefully laid silk web,

I’m struggling for my life while you just lie in wait.

It’s dangerous to look into your crystal eyes

You know I’m trapped and yet you act like you don’t care.

You smile and look at me and gently lick your lips

I shiver and I pray your hunger will subdue.

Over the years you learned that men will bow to you

Will drop down on their knees and offer you the world

You know how to wrap them closely around your fingers

Pull them, love them, make them safe… to kill them yet again.

The more I struggle, the deeper I fall,

The more I struggle, the tighter the wrap.
