The Spider's Web (A Poem On Domestic Violence) by lanrexlan(m): 7:51am On Aug 26, 2018
Theme: Domestic Violence
Title: The Spider's Web


A weak house isn't one built with wood,
Rather one whose denizens are abused.
A home full of mutual violence and feud
That leave residents in morose mood.


Akin to a spider's web; A mate has as food
Its partner, after enjoying its glaring nude.
The mother is then eaten up and chewed,
In the wake of her bloodbath by her brood.


It sounds totally insane and uncouth,
But in an abused home, it's the truth.
A home where disquietude is brewed,
And mates are just entities to be used.


Juicy words walking her down the aisle,
Vows upon vows to always see her smile.
To guide her gently through every mile,
But now tasty honey had turned sour bile.


Her Knight had become a nightmare,
Boxing her up with no mercy to spare.
A gorgeous body is full of bruises & wears
That would bring even a baby to tears.


When you boil with anger & wanna hit her,
Turning a Lassie to a sparing partner.
Know that she's the pearl of her father,
Would you hit her if she's your mother?!
