Spider (Truly)

Truly, you only captured my mind…

merely ensnared it in deadly, silky threads

of logic and intellect.

Pulling it in closer,

even as you wrapped it tighter and tighter

in knowledge, and in love.

Leaving only the nerve center exposed,

as your words sank like fangs

into my bared ego.

And truth your venom,

racing through consciousness and synapse,

instant ecstasy

moments before excruciating pain.

Yet even this pain is joy;

though sinister in its unforgivingness.

Then finally, unexpected calm spreads over thought patterns

like honey;

As my mind opens to accept its fate…

Forever changed, never quite the same

Ego death releasing depths of ignorance –

It is finally free.

Truly, you only lifted my mindset.

My thoughts defy gravity.
