Black widow spider 
So cruel and so cold
Devour the object of your passion
Helpless ecstacy unfold

In loves' delight and overture 
Conceal your deadly bite
Then numb the soul in passions' wake 
No mercy no respite

 Lust tears the web down nightly 
In passionate despair
In frenzy will re-spin it
And morning finds her there

Her web held taut around love's heart
A crystal box lies near 
Enclose the lid when she creeps in
And let love enter here.

Wow!!! You made the black widow sensual and passionate and of course quite evil still. Very unique poem.

I know what you mean... sometimes the words "just come" and other times it's such a struggle!!
