Spider Webs


Manuel A. Morillo

Complex and emotional
Unique yet predictable
Functional in purpose and nature
Bound by set constraints
We are conditional creatures
Trapped yet free like caged birds
We taste and grasp freedom but do not hold on
We are stuck, immobile
Tough yet fragile
Delicate Constructions
We stay in place like spider webs
Homes for our insecurities until we get torn down
We let our fears crawl and settle in
Whisked away and transported to a void, inescapable or some land of happy little trees
We are flawed yet perfect
Beautiful little shells delicately constructed like spider webs.
