Waiting

By Ivanka Fear


Caught
Trapped by your intricate design,
stuck in your delicate web,
it's strength I underestimated.
Not long ago I was free,
flying high without a care.
Couldn't see what's so clear now,
deceived by your invisible lure,
I plunged headlong into your prison.

Caught
Waiting for you
Ensnared in this convoluted mesh,
my struggle to free myself futile,
your supple grip tenacious.
Still hoping to escape your clutches,
for someone to set me free.
Wondering how I let myself get
tangled in your twisted chains,
I lie waiting for your next move.

Caught
Waiting for you
Knowing you'll be back
Captured now by your silken threads,
swaddled safely in your cocoon,
it's softness almost reassuring.
All hope of rescue gone now,
I concede, I'm yours.
Once you sink your fangs into me,
paralyzed by your poison,
I surrender to you,
as you drain the life out of me.
Caught
Waiting to be devoured
by you.
