Once upon a time a "Beauty Flies". Wings shining bright against the moon light.
She took flight but... unknown to her it was a spider waiting for her, with its "Web" already made.
Before she knew it that is where she laid.
Angry at first she fought to get loose.
Soon her strength started to fade.
Discourage sadness sat down beside her.
Beauty there is no hope of escape Sadness spoke.
Hold your tongue Sadness because here comes my "Love Lost".
Beauty became happy again so Sadness faded away.
"Love Lost" knelt in front of Beauty and said if you take my hand you will be free.
Just believe and see.
Beauty hesitated at first then reached her hand out to "Love Lost".
When their hands touched the "Web" around Beauty melted away.
Free from her captive she embraced "Love Lost" and they flew away together.
Unknown to Beauty and "Love Lost" when they flew away the spider that sat on the tree beside the "Web" hiding turned into Cupid and smiled and flew away to wait for another day.
