 Come On In

“Come on in the water’s lovely”

they called out to me 

with their arms outstretched

and the sweetest of smiles.

And I was tempted for sure,

even on this cold winter night

their smiles were as entrancing as sirens.

But the arms waving a welcome

reminded me of spiders

with their stretched out legs

waiting to pounce

in this watery web.

Come on in the water’s lovely




The word echoes through my head

enticing me

for sure,

entrapping me


I’ll soon find out.
