Caught in Your Web
you wait for my mistakes.
You see me twist in your web,
feeling the strands pull tighter.
I no longer see you,
You watch my struggle with calm eyes.
Was I a fool
to be caught in your web?
It was designed to entice;
that it has done.
I see you sway towards me,
You want to give your fatal kiss.
Caught in mesmerizing eyes,
your kiss is all I want.
My mind still struggles with wrong and right,
my patient spider.
You have me caught in your web.
