Unending Wend

~~~ Hiking through a woodland glen as mellow shards of sunset bend to capture bright in waters clear reflections caught from mountains shear The silhouette sings twilight's best Enchanting beauty north by west 'Twas then my heart forgot to beat while visions to my gaze complete A gentle sigh resets its rhythm I step toward this face from heaven ~ In twilight's eerie haze she stood amongst the tranquil shades of wood where timeless paths bestow the land she beckons with extended hand Surroundings waver hardly seen I spring a trap laid there between Then falling deep to darkest dread Above ... the trap once more is spread ~ I tumble blind through timeless mist as things unseen tear clothes to bits Attesting shrieks bare blackest dreams When fingers grab they choke the screams I'm lifted tossed to brink of ledge I scramble safely back from edge Breath wheezed ... lungs filled ... sanguine air but shadows dance to flame's despair ~ Perusing cavern round about entwined with scents of mash and stout The shadows fade as faces bare Their eyes unblinking strangely stare Just who they be I have no clue In cloaks of rag bereft of shoe A boiling pot spills overflows Aroma wafts to pull my nose ~ As grumbles strike beneath my chest a bowl they pass I say my blest The taste is odd but strangely good Then laughs coalesce beneath their hood It strikes me now this tale I'm told just echoed back from memories cold Beware the pit from beauty set Where mortal feet tread with regret ~ I sense the danger lurking near Too late I'm thrust through worlds of cheer Round about with no control Immersed in love then stripped of soul Tears of pleasure tears of pain Round about and back again Conscious whirling twisting vain Blackness lifting Drenched with rain ~ Hiking through a woodland glen as mellow shards of sunset bend to capture bright in waters clear reflections caught from mountains shear The silhouette sings twilight's best Enchanting beauty north by west 'Twas then my heart forgot to beat as visions through my haze complete A pondered thought sends senses reeling 'tis Déjà vu ... I've got this feeling ~~~
