There are spiders in my head.
I see them everywhere
Like in my shoes
Or even in my bed.

They crawl below my skin.
They hold themselves there
While beady eyes are watching me
I feel them closing in.

There are spiders in my mind.
I see them and Im scared
To move my body anywhere
Their legs are so unkind.

i enjoyed this unique one. i've truly had microscopic arachnids in my skin before, they're called scabies. i know i have them in my head, spinning their webs. i liked this, it sounds like losing a mind.
