Arachnophobia

Arachnophobia

A Poem by Sirius King
"

Arachnophobia: An abnormal fear of spiders. This is apart of my "Phobia" series of poems, feel free to check out the others!

"

As you spin this web of deceit

I realize, there is no way to retreat.

Barely able to breath

it's impossible to conceive

that every lie you told I believed.

Caught-up

in this crazy design of confusion,

your lack of truth

brought life to this illusion.

Was it love or lust

that stole my trust?
Leading me to this path of foolishness...

sown in the silk

of ignorance and guilt,
Not wanting to feel the wrath of loneliness.

By your many eyes

I've been hypnotized,

brainwashed to the point of no return
Passion is your poison,

and as it flows it burns.

Sanity hanging on by a thread

while thoughts of you

I strain to shed.

You left me cold,

surviving on my spirit,

getting closer to my soul.

Leaving me encapsulated,

almost mummified

Suffocating in this web

...barely alive

Oh thank God it's not really about spiders, because I actually suffer from this very real phobia, and the only damn reason I clicked on this is because I'm supposed to face my fears...so...*phew*...thank God it's not really about spiders!

I hate spiders. Yet, they fascinate me. When I see one, I go paralytic...my whole body goes numb...but...I study them, because they are strangely beautiful. I just shuddered in my seat. Literally.

Wait...what were we talking about? Oh yeah. I like your poem. Thank God it's not really about spiders.

This is a more realistic fear than fear of spiders - the fear of deceit. Love your take on arachnophobia - well done!

yes.. definitely
the web that some how finds its way in part by our blindness and part by our own want or so were left to think as we ponder the hows when's and were on that thread upon we dangle over our own breaking bleeding hearts seeing the hurt creep up bit by bit and yet allowing its progress to rap us up tight just before it feast's unhindered... this is what is see in your work here!!
