Spiders weave their webs
in the corners of my house.
They manage to weave a new one
every time
I destroy.
It's a clash of wills
I guess..
They will weave
I will destroy..
They may conquer me after I die..
They will cover my body
and weave a net
where my heart now lies..
But as long as I live
I will destroy..
