Sinewy Spider - Poem by Jennifer Sol

I can see it now, a sinewy spider
Crawling out of your mouth
Spinning a web of lies unseen
To everyone but me
I can see the wool in your hands
Desperately trying to pull it over
Prying eyes of those who care
I can see the knife in your pocket
The way you look at it with longing
I can see what you want to do
Your desperation, your pain
You’re transparent to me
I can see through your facade
I know that every night that knife hovers
Above your wrist, anxious to strike
Your lies grow bigger and more elaborate
You’re cutting off your air with this web
Killing yourself and you don’t want to know
You’re hiding from yourself
Turn the knife on that sinewy spider
Get rid of the wool
Come out of your cave
Stop hiding the truth from yourself
I can see it now, a sinewy spider
Crawling out of your mouth
Spinning a web of lies, unseen
To everyone, even you
