Arrogant - Poem by Cat Summers

Arrogant
You came to me
Expecting me to be privileged
At the chance to be in your arms again

Arrogant!
Don’t you see? !
It’s different this time.

Before you held your arms out to me
And like a fly caught in the spider’s web
I was stuck
In that false embrace you created
As you prepared to eat me alive

Arrogant!
Don’t you see? !
It’s different this time.

You’ve shown me what’s beneath that mask
A mere rat beneath shed skin
Now I see that those arms you are spreading out to me
Are ink scribbled with deceit

This time, I will allow you to think I’ve become trapped once more
But remember, Arrogant
It’s always the snake that eats the rat.
