Spider

Spindles and thread break at the root,
just as I.

another sleepless night of hanging by one of my legs
while the others work inward taking a part all the loose pieces.

The ventricle spills from the left side,
of hopes that we can breathe together again.

Or have I made you crazed on the inside the way the spider will do?

I’ll just struggle with an arm (or is it a leg?) to pull together the threads
and wonder if we are what we once were.

and
if
we
fell
off
my
web.

Eyes will be outstretched till reddened

Just wondering if you have passion of flight left
(for me)
or staring blankly is what is left, apathy imbued
just waiting to be preyed upon.

And the spider is scared to not have company of the fly.

If you have lips anymore,
unscathedkiss
me like it is goodbye.
