I love your title! It is a great description of gossip.

Just a little red ink OK is spelled okay or both letters should be capitalized. Either way is acceptable.

You did a great job of pulling me into your poem. I could really feel your emotions and feel that you've tried really hard to stop gossiping. Your comparison of gossip to a sticky web is brilliant. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for being so transparent in this heartfelt poem.

Be careful of using too many metaphors--in this, you have gossip as a spider and as candy, and also something that you 'shut the door' on. Sometimes a poem is more effective when just one metaphor is used throughout.

Nevertheless, this has some really fine imagery, and I enjoyed reading it.
