​Love & Spiders 3

I saw a black widow spider sitting in her web
Thinking with my heart rather than my head

I listened to her coo, all the pretty words she said
Her hourglass glowing the color of blood pure red

I love you, together we can be
I want you forever inside me

I found myself inside her cold arms
Hypnotized by her words and all her charms

She whispered love only hurts when it is true
And because I love you, you know what I must do

She kissed me once singing it will be all right
She kissed me again and then killed me that night

She had loved and I had died
She held me in her arms as she cried
