Like a spider without a web


The first rays of sunshine,
With morning's first dew,
Like little sparkling beads
Strewn across all creation.

The silver strands,
That make my life,
Sway gently in the gale
In this stormy time.

No creature too small.
No branch too big.
The wind cleanses us,
Of our mottled skin.

Never needing to hang on,
Always preying for tomorrow.
Looking big at my world.
Master of all I survey.

A noise interrupts life.
My world stands still
A moment before it explodes.
Fleeing chaos in the blink of an eye.

Has the danger passed?
Or did I let slip a chance?
Only time will tell.
Only time will tell.

Emerging from the shadows,
Ready to deal a lethal bite.
An unsuspecting victim am I.
Taking life so that I may live.

Roaming the nooks and crannies of this world,
Suspended animation several feet in the air.
Like a spider without a web.
Like a life without meaning...
