I Awake To Darkness (part 6)

I awake to the spirits saying that I’m foolish for what I’ve done I look up and falling from the sky is my great grandfather’s gun They tell me to pick it up and end both of our lives I tell the spirits to hold their tongues because they are what I despise They are now confused and are wondering what will happen I reach for the girl’s hand and she gives a heartwarming grin We begin to walk through the never-ending forest And the spirits tell me that I must continue with my quest I agree with them this time and arrive back on my path Then the girl bursts out in a beautiful laugh I ask her what could possibly be so funny She said my hair was shaped like the ears of a bunny I felt a little embarrassed so we stopped at a river And then a cool breeze came and gave my spine a shiver We grabbed each others hands and then we took off The mood of the forest was no longer soft It began to fill with a horrible mood of rage and hate As we were running in front of us was standing a giant gate We reached the gate and broke its giant chains Then the forest started moaning of a heart wrenching pain The girl and I had closed the gate that was now behind us Turning around we both saw a house that was covered in moss The energy that was emitted from this grand building It gave the girl and I a sort of tiring feeling We both sat down and rested our heads On a moss covered wall that became our bed The scent in the air was of the girl I fell asleep and I’m now in another world…

Interesting twist with the spirits' change of attitude. I think there is still something coming perhaps difficult to face. Thanks for leaving me hanging... :), can't wait to read part 7. The writing is so well done and all that in rhyme! This is fantastic. Are you planning to write a book? Thanks for sharing. I guess you got yourself a fan. :) Read you later, Caroline.
