To The Spider, Who Understands

spider web

But what about the spider?
Who builds a web so intricate,
so perfect, so impenetrable
that not even the most adept creatures
can escape. Sewn silk that glistens
in the afternoon sunlight, twists and shifts
in all its captivating grandeur. Capturing.
Never releasing. Walls built to keep safe,
to save.

But even the fiercest of us,
are fragile.
Even the fiercest of us,
break.
