Spider Web A hollowed tree

SPIDERWEB

A hollowed tree

A hollowed tree Like the air in a haze of silence

A hollowed tree Like the air in a haze of silence Like a sunflower seed in the palm of your hand

A hollowed tree Like the air in a haze of silence Like a sunflower seed in the palm of your hand Like a child anticipating Christmas morning

It starts faster than you're prepared for

At first you're falling

Terrified, uncontrolled, holding your breath

Terrified, uncontrolled, holding your breath Eyes closed

Terrified, uncontrolled, holding your breath Eyes closed Wind whistling past you

You're shaking

You're shaking Now you're screaming

You're shaking Now you're screaming Thrilled

You're shaking Now you're screaming Thrilled Heart racing

You're shaking Now you're screaming Thrilled Heart racing Teeth bared

You're smiling now

As you catch yourself

As you catch yourself Adhering to a branch

As you catch yourself Adhering to a branch Swinging from side to side

Weaving through everything in your way

Weaving through everything in your way Intertwining with yourself

Weaving through everything in your way Intertwining with yourself Braiding your own silk

Don't stop for a moment

If anyone saw you they'd tell you to slow down

But you don't know how

You've given up control of your body

You're the creator

You're the creator And the follower

Constructing your own masterpiece

Nothing

Nothing Else

Nothing Else Exists

Time is a fictional concept

The world is a cloud of fog

The world is a cloud of fog And you have never seen more clearly

The patterns dancing before you

The patterns dancing before you Growing in magnitude and detail

And it's exquisite

You hear the murmurs as people walk past

You hear the murmurs as people walk past Admiring your quilted work of art

It's all that's ever mattered

It's all that's ever mattered It's all that ever will matter

It's all that's ever mattered It's all that ever will matter Past, present, future, as one

Now for the first moment

You take a breath

Proud

Proud Relaxed

Proud Relaxed Content

Lucky to have been given this talent

Satisfied with your efforts

Blessed to be a part of something so great

Blessed to be a part of something so great So breath-taking

Twists of sweet silk wrap around you

Intertwined with your self-made comfort

Intertwined with your self-made comfort Wrapped in your blanket of security

Intertwined with your self-made comfort Wrapped in your blanket of security Tangled in your thoughts of happiness

Gum on the soles of your feet

Captivated by your own distractions

Captivated by your own distractions Bound by your expectations

Captivated by your own distractions Bound by your expectations Smothered by the necessity of love

Glue on the tips of your fingers

Trapped by the need for control

Trapped by the need for control Suffocated by your pride

Trapped by the need for control Suffocated by your pride Choking on the admiration

Rubber bands constricting your neck

Bound by the fear of change

Bound by the fear of change Knotted by the unwanted consistency

Bound by the fear of change Knotted by the unwanted consistency Imprisoned by your own design

Your legs strapped, unable to move

Your hands cemented to the transparent rope

Tightening around your wrists

Your hair becomes the sheer silk

Your clothes are now tangled twine

Encompassing the entirety of your body

Adhering to your ankles

Strangling your neck

Drowning your thoughts

Suffocating your free will

Vision blurs

Vision blurs World dulls

Vision blurs World dulls Sounds muffle

Struggling only weakens you

So you become stone

So you become stone Paralyzed

Unable to move

Unable to move Unable to breathe

Unable to find the motivation

Unable to find the motivation The purpose

Unable to find the motivation The purpose The drive

Unable to find the motivation The purpose The drive You once had

You've lost possession of your worth

Surrounded by beauty

Surrounded by beauty Your stomach remains an empty glass jar

Suddenly

Suddenly You're swept

Suddenly You're swept You're spinning

Suddenly You're swept You're spinning Unwinding

Suddenly You're swept You're spinning Unwinding Out of control

Trying to grasp onto a thread

Trying to grasp onto a thread Something recognizable

Trying to grasp onto a thread Something recognizable Reaching to hold on

Trying to grasp onto a thread Something recognizable Reaching to hold on Arms flailing

Trying to grasp onto a thread Something recognizable Reaching to hold on Arms flailing Hummingbird heart

As everything you've ever known disappears

Ripped apart

Torn to shreds

Every

Every Detail

Every Detail Destroyed

And you're left

Alone

Dangling

Gasping for air

Controlled by the wind

A single thread

Cinched to your leg

Dragging along

The crushed dream of what once was

Ache lingers

Ache lingers Birds flutter

Ache lingers Birds flutter Ants scurry

And you're left stranded

Abandoned by your past

Unable to begin again

Like the air in a muddy cloud of noise

Like the air in a muddy cloud of noise Like a sunflower dehydrated to a crisp

Like the air in a muddy cloud of noise Like a sunflower dehydrated to a crisp Like a hopeless child, brought to reality

Until one day

It will snap

And you will be nothing again
