I open the rusty latch on the barn door.
The moment I step inside, I feel sick.
I can see the old wooden chest in the corner.
I raise my hands over my head,
making sure I don’t run into a spider’s web
As the light shines through, it produces a new clue.
A web hangs in the corner of the barn.
“Are u scared? The spider seems to ask.”
Why am I scared when it’s just a thread?
A design of beauty, with a deadly scare.
The closer I get, my heart beats faster,
Just another second, won’t matter.
Felling uneasy, with each step I take,
I get chills down my spine and sweat on my face.
The large web glistens up high over my chest,
I just can’t, I can’t take another step.
The spider has just claimed victory, on my old wooden chest.
I’m terrified of all insects, but you made this spider almost beautiful…I said ….almost. Great write.
Thank you. I am also terrified of insects. I hate spiders!
My best girlfriend was once so terrified of spiders that she nearly had a car wreck when she saw a spider climbing up the windshield.
Scary! The same thing happened to me.
It was a white spider!
