The Silken Web

You have spun a careful web of lies.
Lying in disguise.
It’s made smooth as silk,
sparkling before my very eyes.

You whispered to me, spoke my name, 
enticing me to follow.
Luring me into the silken web.
Its tendrils of soft silk, wrapping around me.
Caressing me into its self.

You wound it tight and warm around me.
Then I could not breathe.
Little did I know there would be no way out.
This web of lies you have woven, 
cannot be undone.

    I am adding this to my faaaaaaavorites list! I love how you used the metaphor of lies being like a web that you can't get out of- that is such a perfect way of wording it and you did it with such beauty. Love this poem!!

    I am really enjoying getting to know fellow writers, and learning about the many styles of writing. I haven't written in almost 20 years and it feels great to be able to get back into my craft xo
