Cautiously I tread down a path paved of nightmares
Dark trees with gnarled branches
Marked with loneliness
Stained with loss
Misery hangs in the air
Despair trails down imaginary forest walls
Walls from which cries for help seep
Bottomless crevices of broken dreams
Frightening images paralyze
Petrified eternally, mentally, physically
Sounds of crushed aspirations whisper like an evil cry
Hopes and dreams turn to dust,desecrated
Envy runs as thick as poison
Eating away at logic
Sensibility all but gone
Drowning in abhorrent past
Still haunting traversly hanging overhead
No sign of depreciation in sight
Decayed by wear and tear
Frayed edges barely hanging on
Shadows of raven colored streaks reach out
Wanting to strip all promises
Silent prayers to the heavens in protest and anguish
Screams that resemble wounded animal
Howls of suffering rise through frigid winds
Plaguing anticipation as you echo into the night
Heart beating wildly pounding like a fist
Screaming through leaves
Answered by silence...
Feeling your cold, dead eyes
Following me, do I run? can I hide?
Like a disease slowly it begins to decompose
Rotting like wood aged over time
Till its all but gone...
