I found it in the Haunting Wood.
Fragile, familiar sobs reverberating
In the corner
of my mind
Sent me searching off the trail as
The voice as innocent as childhood
Running as roots grabbed and
The darkness thickened towards
I found her in the Haunting Wood.
Leaking hazel eyes staring into mine.
“We’ve failed,” she says locking eyes,
Hooking my soul as the haunting words
“We were never enough.” Old fears
Beckon as they begin to rise and walk.
I found me in the Haunting Wood.
Didn’t notice its oily shadow hovering,
As I listened, captive to old fears, the
Child’s shadow rose to its full height until it
The darkness seeped in through my pores,
Aggressively choking me out of my body until
You can find me in the Haunting Wood.
Now I’m the haunt that calls you onward,
