spider

silent venom
slowly seeping
as I sleep

scalding fingers
of poison flame
stretch and grasp
beneath my skin


in this dream
I call your name

I have very strict rules for the spiders who choose to share my flat. :)

I really don't like spiders. This one gave me the creeps! I do love the alliteration, though!
