One night a deadly tarantula spider was crawling up a man's arm.
He wondered if he could do something to prevent himself from being harmed.
He was afraid that if he tried to knock it off, it would bite.
The spider could sense that the man was paralyzed by fright.
He had no idea that the tarantula was near.
He was shivering and about to faint from fear.
Things did become worse because he got bit.
He then knocked the spider to the floor and killed it.
As he grabbed his cell phone to call 911, he fell to the floor.
He died immediately and now his loved ones have him no more.
His life ended but spiritually he will live on.
If people remember him, he'll never be gone.

Amazing!  Only you could have written this wildly imaginative and tightly-plotted poem.  It grabbed me (not like a tarantula thank God) from the beginning to the end.  Please keep up your singular style.  --David

I have always been frightened of spiders, and now I fear them even more.  :-)

I enjoyed the read.
