Nightmare Web

Through the spider’s web
trapped by illusion; sticky
these thoughts, theses pearls
of venom that cling and bore

Desperately crying: Help!
unable to clear the shadows –
nightmares end, they say,
all I hear is menacing laughter.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
