Her smile

has spinnerets,

shoots invisible strands

that stick to your eyes,

wrap around your groin,

pull you inextricably tighter,

wind you in a gossamer shroud

ready to devour you

in sucking gulps,

and leave you an empty husk.

    Your metaphor is spot on ! This doesn’t quite seem to fit into the three ancient bard categories, but maybe we don’t always get their metaphors.

    Death takes us all, but to die in sweet embrace is a life well spent.
