    Salt water swells over a filling eye
    everytime I see a spider die.
    God once spoke and called them holy,
    feels sometimes like God only told me...

    Speaking silky words never heard,
    grounded octopusses spin the earth.
    Silent pluckers of reality's strings,
    unknown angels operating secret schemes.

    Warm kind things they are within
    as their treasured bodies stroke my skin.
    A touch of healing's holy grace
    freely dances onto my face.
    The love exchange knows no pace,
    imagine nirvana, a sacred space..

    Spiders are heaven's watchers,
    summoned from a holy deal,
    asked to help us face our fears.
    Sent to teach us how to feel..

      I am terrified of spiders, but for some reason cannot bring myself to squash the one in my window.

    A unique and therefore refreshing read.

      I agree with Jacob. The context was there but the rhyming was forced. I like the imagery and the tone though, both very ambigious towards the actual meaning. I hear some creation undertones in there.

      there are some really cool images in this...some very good lines...but it just felt like the rhyme was forced and a bit contrived...let that come naturally if it is going to ...but otherwise, i would like to see you just let it go...even if free verse comes out ---you want the poems not to sound like they were the result of a lot of effort.
