"And the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their Shepherd. He will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." Revelation 7:17


Spiders skittering inside vulnerable souls,
weaving their cobwebs in and out of lost hearts;
their host oblivious to the gaping holes

stretching the gap into eternity that parts
Creator from created so hopelessly,
that no more can one decipher where it starts.

Revealed, we now see their true identity,
never trusting our everlasting Savior,
leaning on their twisted silk of catastrophe.

Unaware that their rebellious behavior
condemns them to live in ceaseless, tortuous death.
And spiders turn to drink their bitter flavor.

Spiders reprenting sin in this instance, they take hold of you and, in the end, consume you.

"Love a girl who writes,
and live her many lives;
you have yet to find her,
beneath her words of guise."

I agree with Tim, I enjoyed the discribtion. It was different from anything I've read before, and I liked it.
