The Spider and the Fly

Bound by the soul through love in the 
good times and pain in the hard times,
Trying to unravel and be free like a fly in a 
spiders web,
Just one more thrust should break him 
loose but there always seems to be one 
single stand that keeps him binded in this 
deadly noose,
The spider ever so slowly inches closer to 
her suffering prey,
Knowing this will surely be the last 
moment the fly will ever see the light of 
Fighting for his life now the fly becomes 
more and more confined in his soon to be 
This will surely be his imminent doom,
Just one look into the spiders eyes causes 
the fly to be paralyzed,
Almost as if  he hypnotized by her 
He realizes there is no escape as she 
begins to reel him in,
He now feels her beginning to devouring 
his soul,
He has given up and most definitely lost 
all control.
