I have an irrational fear of spiders, ever since I was a child I remember dreaming often of them and in my dreams they were huge. Still to this day I dream of spiders, or wake up and think I see them and I have no idea why. This is a short poem I wrote one morning when I woke from yet another spider dream.

Sorry my posts have been lacking, I’ve struggled to find the time and inspiration. I am working on a bigger post at the moment though and it should be finished in the next couple of days.

Let me know what you’re afraid of. Also, if you have any ideas of why I have these spider dreams, I would love to finally get to the bottom of it!

Until next time, I hope you’re having a good week.

The spiders shuffle swift and keen,
They come near to me to watch me scream,
They never leave my line of sight,
I see them when I dream at night,
They’re nightmarish
They follow me
I wish the spiders would let me be. 


  1. Lovely piece… Short little nice poem. It was a wonderful piece to read. I just hate it when I walk into their web with my face all in it, and next thing it’s like I’m having a Kung Fu lesson trying to get it off my face. But just like someone said, I think when you stop being afraid, the nightmares will stop too.
