Reckless Prey
A Goethe Stanza

You are but a felon with might

Whirling castles; spinning web of lies
Waiting for a victim, ensnaring to plight

Leaving broken hearts and foolish cries


And I am but a reckless prey

Lost and barren and severed wings
Trapped in a mesh, unable to flee

Caught by a spider best at pulling strings
