do you ever wish you were a spider
crawling up her spine
from the inside

you're inside her
whether you like it or not
and you do
and you won't
but you already have
so do you still wish you were a spider

fight your fears
she kills spiders for fun
fight your feelings
she snaps seven and lets you beg

you try to crawl away
but she just smiles at you dazzling darling
and pops your tiny spider head
and swallows you whole

do you ever wish you were a spider
with legs like her lashes
do you ever wish you didn't scream and cry
writhing in her infested web
she cries alligator tears with you

are you afraid of yourself
little spider can't spin anything but
lies between his fingers
lies between his legs
are you afraid of giving in
because you already gave out

do you ever wish you were a spider
inside outside right side up
look in the mirror and
look yourself in every eye
would you be able to breathe

would you see what i see
