 Poems for Lovers and Sinners

Forest of Cries

  Dark unpleasantness crisscrossing good and evil

  Delving between the trees and mist where...

  Sorrow lingers beside lost souls - And

  Cries are like echo's reverberating along...

  Solitary paths, where once open footsteps trod...

  Passing between trees which hang like towers

  Guarding, protecting like an army of giants

  Projecting deep shadows across lonely pathways

  Forming an archway and a marriage of their branches

  To ensemble all who come before them en mass...

  As the wind crawls through the midnight forest

  Swirling up leaves and cries from beyond the beyond

  Eyes are alight with gleeful cheer and willingness

  Howling bellows around the ancient oaks as the mist...

  Gathers up anything and everything within its way -

  The village doors are locked, bolted and fires burn fiercely

  No one enters the forest at night, that's has it is...

  They hear the sounds echoing throughout the village

  It shakes and trembles with a resounding fear each heart beat feels

  They know out there dark and unpleasantness lurks

  They know out there is the forest of cries...
