eager to succumb

companion piece to web slinger

the sultry, savvy spider sets
her own successful traps
sticky, strong, she strings along
some unsuspecting saps

so it was with her and him,
she the spider, on a whim,
released the pest he had become,
though he was eager to succumb

the fragile threads
that built
this web
have just been
pulled apart
the fly escapes
the spider makes
a relocated start
.
so it was
with you and i
you the spider
i the fly
escaped your prison
flew away…
rebuild, ensnare
some other prey
