Spiderwebs of Love

Spiderwebs of Love

 

In life, it seems, we build our bonds with tenuous threads

How easily they break and those tears are shed

Together the web they weave stands strong and sure

A beautiful masterpiece so full of allure

But one by one they fall apart

Something breaks that fragile piece of art

It can be repaired, perhaps stronger than before

Yet it’s so often thrown away rather than restored

Because, unlike a spiderweb that’s torn,

It takes two to build the bond once more

It’s enough to make one wonder why we weave at all

Never get too comfortable – it’s not that hard to fall

    A great analogy to apply to relationships. We weave our webs carefully and it takes two to maintain, repair, or rebuild. Very well penned. Shannon.

      Thanks. It’s too bad they’re so fragile. It doesn’t have to be that way.

      Thanks. I don’t like spiders much, but they fascinate me when building webs.
