Please untie me

By Jonas Robinson

The torment is crawling all over my skin
I don't know why I let this spider on me to begin
"But if you keep on crying, he'll spend his life in sin
So just wait a couple hours and drown and do not win"

Deadly flowers in the feild of where I swim
Alas I fall asleep but he's aiming at my skin
If he won't drown himself I might begin to scream
Because the next Hell after Hell is going to be the next painful bight again

Cross your arms
Cross your legs

Alas, the spider eats my skin
For his only savage purpose is to get himself some din
All I know is I'm floating and the feild is flooded from within
Crawling in the circle of another man's chin

    The itsy-bitsy spider went up the water spout...but I digress JR. This was a simile I believe, to an addictive craving that needs to be scratched or smooshed perhaps. Very creative imagery and hoping it's not the same brown recluse that got me (seriously) Cheers my friend! - Dan

    Thank you for the sympathy. I'm glad you enjoyed the imagery, that's one thing I put in effort into this one. :)

    K... Hey sTr8, we have to go the store today; don't forget milk, eggs, potatoes & dog fud (that's how dogs spell it.) There, left myself a message. On a serious note, this is probably my favorite piece of yours so far brother. Idk why the spiders image is so awesome in my head from this: runic glowing tattoo-like tribal lines going up it's legs & joining on the body. That's what I get from this, thanks my man. Loved theis poem, keep it up.

    I'm glad you could see the spider imagery. That's what I intended by using a repetitive tone. Thank you.

    Wow, this was very different from what I've read up to now (but in a good way) and it felt as intricate as threads of a cobweb, creating a beautifully crafted bond in the process. Very well done!
