FanFoFeb: Spider’s Web

Here I am stuck in the web. How did I get here

I cannot move my head or my heart

Each  minute the arrival of the the spider grows near

Holding my  breath waiting  for  the vibrations to start.



My mouth is full of silver web, my eyes are fastened shut

I dare  not struggle I cannot fight

I am so tired I feel so lost all my safety lines are cut

Lost, so lost am I stitched up I can’t take flight.



The web is bouncing, the spider is huge  and it grows near

I see her reflective eyes searching for me

She is on top of  me now her jaws clamp me, the poison sears

Suddenly an alarm bell rings , I open my eyes Thank God I am free.



Sweat soaked  hair tangled tousled in the bed clothes

I was dreaming I was caught in fantasy

Something catches my eye and  my anxiety grows

There is a spider on my pillow eyeing  me!

FanFoFeb : The slam.

The door slammed shut again

Bringing  forth all those years of pain.

Enough  she said, enough she felt

Packed a bag and left a note misplet.

Outside the rain was pelting down

Yet she was smiling no sign of a frown.

Young  and free she was determined to be

She’d spent too many years in hell you see.

She took a bus, she caught  the train

Then walked recognizing this old terrain .

Visiting  the cafe where she’d spent happy hours

Next to the shop where she’d worked  with flowers.

Sitting  there watching the rain and angry sea

She  wandered could  this be it,was she really free.

She took a bus, she caught  the train

Then walked recognizing the old terrain …. ( yes  you guessed it Home again.)
