Black Widow Spider



I’ve never been a fan of creepy crawlers.

They, may, leave you compromised.

I lay witness to one clung to my finger, and immediately sought removal.

I feared in doing so, it would certainly sting.

Left without choice, I approached with caution.

As, I attempted to remove this creature, its venom pierced my skin.

I struggled to lessen its grip, and eventually squash the threat.

While certain its poison would overcome me, and I too would meet with death-

a loud noise roused me from my sleep, and ended my distress.
