night phobias

that night


I found a spider in my bed


 


only a small one


with eight little legs


eyes too small to even see


 


but it made me forget


all about the corners and


sharp lights burning my skin


 


I was too scared


of the spider,


too focused on its


movements in the dark


 


we were there that night,


me and the spider


 


running away from my


scary hands that could


far too easily


destroy something so


complex and delicate


 


me and the spider
