The Web

We roared the night we first met,

and then I got frightened and hid from you.

 

I found you again

when the lightning returned,

and you answered

with a howl like thunder.

 

I invited you into my web one morning,

but it was you who had me trapped,

pinned — just the way you wanted — and I, too,

double-crossed by my own desire.

 

We soared down the coast in a dream we made up that day,

like children at play making movies.

The world looked brighter — finally — after so much time,

someone could see the same colors as mine.
