The Forest – A Poem

This is a tangled forest.

Dark water falls down,

Yet somewhere there is beauty,

And it holds my hand.

This is a danger forest,

A do not enter.

But stars shine out great comfort,

Between pricking thorns.

I must find a get out path,

To stop the poison,

That breathes in the living air,

Sweeter than honey.

Heaviness upon my chest,

And between my thighs

Holds me, the midnight silence

Beckons me to stay.
