Devoured by Love

When your soul is trapped
In a body
That is trapped in a family
Trapped in a job
Trapped in a society
Trapped in a world
That doesn’t fit…

And the urge to escape
Through substance abuse,
Through thrills, sex, work
Through religion, death…
Has you running
Around and around
The spider’s web
Seeking a door

Know that it doesn’t exist
Go ahead and exhaust yourself
Cry, rage, grieve…
Give up all desires
Face your fears
Let the spider devour you
