the spider

come to me.
regard my web with disgust and wonder.
come to me and let me show you
how you will love that you hate
as long as i can spin a beautiful web.
how you mistake smallness with harmlessness.
how even you believe poison to be honey.

i play with those stuck in my web.
don't touch it, you don't understand how fragile it is.
stay faraway from me and send your love from there.
stay there, don't come any closer, stay faraway, away from me.
you'll break everything i've worked so hard to build.
you will break my body without heistation.
never forget the poison i carry.

ah, but i never meant to hurt you.
ah, i meant no harm, forgive me.
you tried to catch me in your net.
but i am not your butterfly.
hurry, leave this place before the poison spreads.
and stop your crying.
you won't die.
