The spider’s web stuck to my skin,
But the fear, I would not let in.
A hundred eyes stared at me,
I tried to run but could not flee.
The web held me, stuck in place,
As the spider crawled towards my face.
I’ve never seen a spider so large,
Nearly as big as a fishing barge.
It’s venomous fangs, three feet long,
Eight hairy legs muscled and strong.
Then a noise caused me to shake,
My alarm buzzed, and I did wake.
It was a dream, I’m safe in my bed,
Halloween thoughts drifting through my head.
