Spiders Chasing Me

Spider Night Bokeh 3

Was that a spider? Could you see? They always come after me.

When I was a child and going to sleep spiders would cover me head to feet.

Scared and frozen I’d close my eyes but could still see them falling from the sky.

Tap, tap, tap what was that sound beating unceasingly?

Not my heart and not my feet but the spiders as they wrapped their web about me.

Tighter, tighter it swirled around until I was a mummy they captured me.

Frozen no longer I’d scream and shout but nary a peep could be heard without.

Kicking and scratching I’d rip through the web only to see it grow back again.

Finally, wet eyes closed; defeated and forlorn I’d fall asleep until the morn.

  1. You write lovely and kinda creepy poetry for a talking mutant ant humanoid

  2. Ren

    Very nice- I am sure that is an all too real dream for a bug.

  3. You’re awesome.

  4. Excellent use of words. Particularly enjoyed ‘nary’, is that used locally, though I think I’ve heard it in the more northern part of of the UK?

    • Thanks Jason!

      I don’t hear it locally but it is part of my regular conversations. You’re going to laugh but I’ve been reading regencies & the like for decades so there are a few others that sneak in there.

      When I start saying whilst I know I need to take a BBC break ;0

  5. Thanks everyone. I was bugged out and thought I should share it with you ;)

  6. I had been wondering if your hosting is OK? Not that I’m complaining, but slow loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and could damage your high-quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
