The Widow's Web


The Widow's Web

Sparkling in the sunlight ...
Shimmering in morning dew.
Attracting - men like flies,
With the nectar that is you.
It is the web you've woven,
Spinning wicked little lies.
Spitting your lethal venom,
Into unsuspecting eyes.


Just like the praying mantis ...
Who is always on his knees.
He's always taking chances,
When he tries to mate and please.
He allows her to take a lick,
Knows this time it could mean death.
As she plants her lethal kiss,
While nibbling on his neck.


The web you weave is tangled ...
Winding carefully each strand.
Ready to pounce, you dangle,
To capture yet another man.
Once trapped, there is no escape,
As you wind him up so tight.
Giving up, he accepts his fate.
~~~ Just another victim ~~~   
of the Widow's bite!

A very relatable I wish I didn't relate to...the bite hurts but it does time you even develop a tolerance and therefore able to weed out the good from the widows do devour...but they also end up alone and bitter...great write...Cher

very powerful and emotional to say the least, I can feel the agnst and pain of this write as it cries out in anger and fustration for the broekn heart that was left behind, bravo! I wish I could say I couldn't relate to this write but in truth I can on more levels than I would like to admit, atleast you escaped from the web with your life blood intact. I was caught in such a web for like 7 years, by the time I escaped there was little left but an empty shell of a soul, bleed dry to the core of my being, it was only through the grace and love of God that he filled me again with the blood of life... Purity of the soul, journey well!!! with grace and humility your friend ANGEL



Thanks John! :) I appreciate the read and in depth commentary. Sorry you too pal had to suffer the widows bite! So many men fall for this type of woman only to be left dangling and trapped in her deadly web. And if we are lucky enough to escape .. we must fight to heal and survive the venom that we took in. Glad you are a survivor ... We need to stick together! :) Thanks again! :) Ken
