a web of lies

spun so tightly together

entrapping anything that dares try to enter


i never found the time to observe,

to see if there was more to you than what met the eye

if i had maybe i wouldn’t be stuck now


like a fly,

unaware of the danger coming

i waited


but the longer i stayed the more entangled i found myself


and i’d asked for help plenty of times

but i never realized in order to get out i’d have to want to
