We’re good for each other, you and I—the spider and the butterfly

 

Both tempted at once by beauty beheld through diverted eyes; both drawn together in a web of exotic illusions and promise

 

My wings spread to the fullest within your arms; and I cannot move to fly away, lest I be torn apart by separation

 

I am starving as you prepare to devour me whole; you are sinking into my skin and inducing further paralysis

 

I like to think I am the first to fill you completely

 

I like to think these wings of mine are large enough to cradle us

 

As I weaken, you’ll grow stronger; and I will be diminished in these unyielding chains, I mistook for ribbons, binding our hearts

 

We’re made for each other, you and I—the spider and the butterfly

 

One to be captured, one to be destroyed; both to be tested by beauty…corrupted
