Trapped in her web


black widow 1

She is spinning her web,
Invisible threads that bind you to her,
Laying her traps to catch you but you can’t see!
Think you’re so clever,
You are so focused on her,
Trying to evade her obvious moves that you can’t see the invisible threads
Intertwined with the black visible ones she is spinning.
Think you’re so wise
Keeping off the well light black threads she is casting towards you
Yet she watches,
Manipulates as you walk on the invisible threads.
Sticky sticky threads.
You start to realize that somethings not quite right
But it’s too late
You are  stuck and as you struggle
The threads tighten.
You realize the game is up,
Her seductive smiles says it all.
She’s got you in her grasp,
There is no escape,
You have to surrender to your fate.
She’s got you! Got you good!
Black widow spider.
