The Dwindling Conversation























"You're beautiful."

Replied the fly, to the spider.

'youre delicious!'

I feel as if you've touched base with everyone but me. You didn't do this maliciously, at least I hope. You're just doing what you do. Maybe you were inundated and didn't get last message. Maybe you went through your inbox randomly. Maybe you just couldn't figure out what to say.

Does it scare you that I'm frank with you? That I'm forward and that I believe every good word I say about you and want you to believe it too?

Because your silence scares me.

Get to know me.

Please.

Please?

I am not bothered by what you want from me, if it will keep you sustained I will gladly give it, for there are billions of me and only one of you.

I love the poem that this is (I'm assuming) alluding to... either way, it's a very... honest depiction.

My only fear is that of the conversation drawing to a close. Our webs have spun together over time. They are intertwined, slowly forming something beautiful to behold. And silk is strong...

He said that to me earlier tonight. Looked at me with starry eyes. I leaned over and kissed him and I couldn't say anything back. I thought then, 'web of lies.'

Yes, that connotative reference most certainly occured to me as well. However, I chose to focus on the positive as regards the web we have built thus far during our journey together. The simplest of questions tend to lend proof of their most obvious of answers.

And, I understand. Most importantly to me, I have come to understand that I can't even stay mad when my shallow pride states that I ought to be. The love is stronger than logic would dictate. I care deeply and with absolute curiosity about involvement between two souls who choose to listen to one another. On a regular, daily basis.

It must mean something. It means one hell of a connection to me... Cat & Mouse? Fun & Games? The request for transparency denied? Mysterious. Hey, did I ever mention how I love mysteries?

We should make something together someday...

maybe the fly hope the spider will let it go or the fly doesn't care because it go to the net just because it want

The beautiful spider replied, "Agreed, thank You, like My web?, spun just for You." And you. Me.

I'm sorry for being the spider. I'm destroying you. So please, stop thinking I'm beautiful, because I don't deserve any of that.

this unfortunately remind me of a rape scene -- the predator saying 'you're beautiful' to the prey, which is stuck in the web, before it attacks..
