Dedicated to hotspring[quote] Ariadne
Every bit of it is true.
We had an agreement
The tiny black spider and I.
She could have her dark niche,
Near the head of my bed.
But come no closer.
When I came to my solitary bed,
I would see her from time to time
sometimes retreating from the light
Never in the daytime.
As her strong web expanded into my space
I would destroy it,
So she might safely retreat.
Then I wouldn't see her for awhile
It's been awhile.
Last night she revealed herself
In her full glory.
