but he cannot. he rubs his
sore feet and cannot move,
stunned from fleeing.

but he cannot. he coughs and
wheezes, out of
breath from running.

but he cannot. the creature’s spidery
legs creep and crawl down the rickety
stairs towards its midnight snack.

but he cannot. the poison seeps into
his veins, breathing with hell’s
everlasting blaze.

but he cannot. for he is trapped
in his nightmare and is
rooted to the spot.

Great poem! It makes me wonder who is more scared, the spider or the man. I love it!
