There are spiders in my hair

I know that they are there.

They run around my head

and attack me in my bed!


I know that they are there!

I have asked them all to leave

My request they did not receive.

I combed and combed my hair

Yet persistent they are still there.


I know that they are there!

I went to salon and they told me the spiders had all gone.

Still I can feel them in my hair running round, so I know the salon’s wrong.

I am desperate you see I need then them swept away from me

I want them out my hair I demand to know that at last I am  free ,


I know that they are there!


I know that they are there!

Why they are there I do not know, I really hate them so

I have scratched and dug and scraped  but still they will not go.

Damn, damn those spiders in my hair

I f’@@king wish to God that they were not there!


I know that they are there!

    That drives you demented doesn’t it? You know they’re in your hair but no-one else takes the time to look properly so doesn’t see them. Worse still are the mice I can here in the loft but I have no way of getting up there to get them out. They stop me from sleeping, incessantly running around.

      Yes I agree, I thought for one minute you were going to say the mice in your hair… but yet yes mice in the loft are a nightmare …even worse if they are bat because they are a protected species!! 😉

    ah, those pesky critters, Sweet Willow, (real or imaginary) that won’t let up. They’ll never give you peace, ’til you wash away the cause, and therein lies the rub. (pun? intended or not. I’ll let you decide 😉 ) Have a good Wednesday my friend. hugs galore… xPenx

        Poor Pen I hope that I did not contribute to your bad dreams. I often awake terrified from a nightmare in the early hours. I do hope you managed to get some more sleep. I do understand that often sleep in those circumstances is as elusive as a fairie’s foot print. I hope you have a good day Pen hugs eternal xx

      Nasty scuttling eight legged demons!! They do get a bad press but they ensnare their unsuspecting pray in their webs, inject them with venom to paralise them, then eat them alive. When mating the female eats her mate when he has do the business!! I ask you this type of behaviour is not going to endear them to anyone, is it? We had better push them to the back of our minds for now. Hugs eternal xxxxxx

    OK, this was scary as heck for me, as I am afraid of spiders in my hair. I actually had a spider in my hair once — I think my screams were heard in the next state. :-O

      I know that most people are at best uncomfortable and at worst terrified of spiders. So I thought they’d make a good attacker for the poem. I do not like spiders either and that would be my worst nightmare. 😉

    Fascinating to see all these responses to my drawing, even though my name, Paul Bartlett, has not been mentioned…

    Good description of a para aesthesia. Feels exactly like that, and just as intractable. There are infinite variations and can occur anywhere on the body. Quite a few neurological disorders and some infectious diseases generate illusory sensations of varying intensities and descriptions. When the spiders bite, or when the sensations hit the pain threshold they are called dis aesthesia’s. Med withdrawals, alcohol withdrawal, hormone withdrawal or out of whack body chemistry, nutrient deficiencies, even strokes can generate para and dis aesthesia. If you have spiders in your hair, or know someone who does, it is important to find out where they are coming from. —- Bear

      Thank you so much for your interesting information on para aesthesia which I have not heard of before. I shall be looking it up and I shall be treating the spiders in my head with more respect.
      BTW, I have recorded my tribute to my dad you can hear it by clicking on the sound cloud on the right of my page named A Quiet Man.

    If you’re coming to San Francisco…
    Be sure to bring some spiders in your hair…
