Honeyed Spider Web

Drawn into the honeyed spider web
Like a hungry fly searching for food
Zap, trapped in a web of lies strown
Love words thrown out like stars above
A whole galaxy whirling bright
Where is that brightest star tonight?

Oh! How I long for that star tonight
Draw me into that tangled thick web
Tell me I'll be your star shining bright 
Let me feast upon your love like food
Show me all of the galaxies above
Tell me how from your fingertips strown

Love, love's thick web let it be strown
Let this be the starry night tonight
Let's admire all the glories above
Draw me, draw me into the honeyed web
Let  precious love words be my soul's food
Let our love affair be ever more bright  

Those lies are forever burning bright
Around my broken heart they're strown
Drawn in by a honeyed web for food
Broken by the spoiled mess here tonight
Trapped, suffering in this tangled web
Now as I look scanning above

There's a light radiating above
The rich light draws with a glowing bright 
It pulls me with power from the web
As I float along among the stars strown
I am blessed with starlight tonight
The brightness is my strength and food 

Loving arms surround, love is my food
Lifted up higher and higher above
Grateful for this loving time tonight
Love grows to a sparkling bright
The lies are vanished, no longer strown
Broken free from the liar's web

Truth is food, right shines bright
Now high above the honeyed web strown
Resting tonight in love's true web

Fine poem indeed Sara, if this doesn't get a place in the top three, I'd have to read them as this piece to me is going to be hard to beat, nice one, James......

Love is only a lie if you refuse to believe it. I like the star thrill in this fine poem of one web being two things synthesizing into one, happiness. J.A.B.
