night phobias

Cover Image

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
