Lost In the Woods

Walking through the woods I look at the trees How they sway from side to side Leaves steadily falling I compare the leaves to my life Steadily falling apart Into darkness Being walked on Crushed Burnt I head further into the woods See the stream still running Yet a rock is in the middle Holding up the flow of clear water This reminds me of how you have stayed in my way The way of a perfect life A good life Yet, I still walk further By this time, the moon is coming out Darkness is all around me Stars are shining bright It’s time to sleep Time to sleep away the pain The pain of being lost in the woods In my life I lie down I cover myself with the fallen leaves A lone red flower stands by itself I pick it up Place it on my chest Between my breasts Close to my heart And I fall to sleep
