Whispering Leaves

Autumn leaves whisper my name
Follow me, follow me
They dance playfully down the path

A gust of wind creates a smile
Golden leaves, kissed by the sun
Fiery orange leaves
Unraveled, undone
Resting amber leaves
Resting peacefully

Sexy, sultry, seducing
Whispering my name
Follow me, follow me
They lead me down the path
Down the path of despair
Darkness, cold, desolation

I hear laughter in the distance
Evil, eerie, deceptive
I feel a chill through my bones
To the core of my soul
The leaves have disappeared
Down the path
I can’t see them anymore

My heart is heavy
My soul is empty
The path is lonely
The leaves deceived me
