My Cloak Of spiders

My Cloak Of spiders

A Poem by TheAimlessWanderer

A subscription and prescription i am now taking and following

my cloak of spiders 

it follows me around 

crawling and spinning webs

lies and truths i don't want to accept

my cloak of spiders 

follows and i follow too


and mangled

illusory veil 
of the worlds truths

my cloak of spiders 

clings to me 

spinning webs over my eyes

a thought i choose to accept

my cloak of spiders bites and latches onto my skin

a belief held within

a driving force behind looms 

and not whims

my cloak of spiders bites and clings 

but in my eyes now it does not sting

my cloak of spiders 

the ones from me

the ones that weave thread 

pulling from within


the clinging things

under the surface and held deep within

my cloak of spiders does not bite 

or cause fright 

it is all within me 

deceiving to the eyes what we perceive

a choice made by me on how to proceed

no seeds of deception or things laying in the grass

just a choice i made to let things come to pass

my cloak of spiders is a choice i carry with me 
one that can be let go like the whim of starting a loom...

i wish it was more clear who i am even to me it seems dim and held together by words that struggle from within the line is much to thin it is crossing over it is crossing over there no space between m.. more..
