The spider in my chest.

There’s a spider in my chest.

Who would’ve ever thought a little creature could be such a pest?

It has befriended my heart and tricked my head.

It has spun a web through my lungs until they bled.

A web that grew with every new word,

but when I told anyone I was never truly heard.

Perhaps because when I spoke only cobwebs came out,

or perhaps because I wanted you to be proud.

It has left nothing but a hollow shell,

This lonely dark cell.

I spend my days inside here trapped,

Forever in the web it has me wrapped.

 

G.A
