Into these forbidden woods
I come each night
Cold whispers haunt me


I rest in shadows
hear wind
††† screaming in my soul


Trees with broken limbs
form a tangled barrier
deterring those with hearts at peace


Filtered through the mist
moonlight shines
even without the moon


Touching carvings
under moss-covered stone
I feel ancient memories


The forest moans
in the distance
calling me deeper


Just a shadow as I pass
rabbit stills
eyes watching me


I tease myself with fear
chills of the wind
darkness revealing only
††† what eyes cannot see


I hear shrill cries
discordant in my heart
singing of pain regret


Near dawn
††† I pull myself away
knowing Iíll return


Bright morning sun
father wakes me for church
I rise
††† knowing what it means
