A chapter in the book Whispers In The Shadows


by Susan Chetcuti

Who will it be that she spins in her web?
In order to tangle within her fine thread.
Again on the prowl with deep secrets intact,
and knowing full well she's about to attract.

It doesn't take long for his wandering eye,
he gives her a wink as she waltzes on by.
With bait on her hook there's an evil that lurks,
that gives her much talent that usually works.

He's older with style, and a must if he's rich,
her ultimate goal will come after they're hitched.
She leans on his shoulder and whispers her name,
seduction so flawless when playing each game.

A heart that is frozen and never in bloom,
her quest is to kill which will come around soon.
He sweeps back her hair as he lingers his gaze,
that pulls him right in, to her cobweb of maze.

He kisses her lightly and doesn't suspect,
until he sees something that's inked on her neck.
The mark he'd been told was a spider tattoo,
a clue for this cop as his colour turns hue.
