Web

These tears I’ve shed
Are trapped within your spider’s web
Like silver sparkling in light
What hurts the most
Can most delight

This trap you laid
Seemed too beguiling, unafraid
I swept within your cold embrace
The sweetest fruit
Has bitterest taste

All for your device
These tears will crystallise to ice
And shine like diamonds in the day
What promised most
Yet most betrayed

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
