diamond sparkle strands

so long and fine

that only my eyes may see

whispers to change wrap tightly

twining vines of malice

I have no wish to betray


I will not change the way you wish

spider silk net

around my limbs

sticky as honey

on my lips

I will change in my own way

in my own time

I will add my own whispers

of change

and time


in a shimmering trap

of my own weaving

darkness courts all differently

I will be different

cling to light, reach for the dark

and shine

white shroud

nimbus form

web or chrysalis?
