Spider Crush

 
 
Some souls resonate
at a frequency so irresistible,
moderation is not an option.
 
From the first tugs on my web
like a reflex, I’m all in --
spilling  
emptying
wrapping them in silky secrets
from deep inside my belly,
so lost in wonder,
turning them over in my hands,
enthralled.
 
Thinking this could be forever
if I could just immobilize them
with brutal, intoxicating honesty…
And I sink my teeth in deep
extracting all the intimacy they can give
until suddenly
they  
can’t.
 
I return to empty shells
wondering why they fail to feed me,
realizing too late
I‘ve sucked them dry --
resonant frequency
muted.
