To the floor

upon which he falls.

Accept this life

and learn how to crawl.

Given faith

returning fire

he's tormented by

his own desires.

A mysterious ghost

living in the shadows

awaiting a heart

to enter the gallows.

Using a mind

as a gift

thoughts come alive

as wires tripped.

Tarantula heart

a scavenger bold

a man who is lending

many hands to hold.

Eyes are black

like midnight coal

still defied

in partial or whole.

Tarantula heart

a web of treasure

haunted by the neverlost

the brethren cries

in echo measure.

The things he captures

they never stay

but their love is a thrill

when they fall prey.

To receive these gifts

of adulation

perhaps a figment

of his imagination.

A mysterious ghost

tormented by host

his life , his love,

the many arms that he owns.
