Venus Fly Trap

Venus Fly Trap

You wait for me with open arms
On a silken bed of lies
To taste your sweetest poison
Would mean certain death for flies
But this crystal that you dangle
On a golden thread of bliss
Is more than I can handle
I am captured by your kiss
You play with my resistance
With your jewel of insistence
A single finger of certain doom
Bids me enter your heavenly room
I enter freely
To the world of the lost
Your legs wrap around me
Like a sudden winter frost
Trapped in your deadly embrace
My life to be the cost
Surround me with your wings dark angel
Kiss my soul away
For I am just a foolish fly
Captured by the sweetest lie.

"Your legs wrap around me

Like a sudden winter frost", sounds like the perfect trap. I like the theme of the Venus Fly Trap, you've worked it well! =))

Ohhhh! This could very well have been about people, but I see it is in the general category. Poor flies, always falling for the sticky sweet substance, and meeting their demise.!
In truth, I detest flies, dirty little devils, one of only three bugs I'll take the swatter to, lol..I would never kill a spider, but flies meet their fate if they come in the house! Venus Fly traps are interesting plants, but hard to keep. Good word choices in this, phrasing and all. Yep, good write!
