This is my first poetry submission. This is loosely inspired by all the horror movies set in the forest. I hope you enjoy, lovelies!
The forest is a dark mistress.
She is peaceful.
Quiet with only the sounds of crickets, howling winds, and mysterious animal sounds.
She is tranquility.
She is a dark Heaven.
Little do you know
As the night goes on
She reveals her dark oblivion
Of mind tricks
of nightmares you'd never imagined before.
High pitched noises that you could have sworn were a scream
Footsteps in which you are not sure are your own.
Shadows lurking in the light that leave you running for your life!
Figments of your imagination are confusing in darkness!
With devilish faces
visions of unfathomable terror.
The Forest and her tranquility are now but a distant memory.
The darkness behind your eyes
and the fast pacing of your breath
are the last thing you remember
before a hand slowly reaches your side
And by the end of the night.
You will realize how the forest can change your life.
