FOREST SO DEEP


Source:heckelphono

In the forest so deep
there are creatures to meet.
At day they’re fast asleep.
At night they can’t be beat.

The howling wind plays their song
of bloody deaths for us all.
They’re not for this place for long.
They wait for the town to fall.

They walk on silent feet
through the forest so deep.
I must keep moving my feet
Without stopping to sleep.

They are surrounding me.
I can’t outrun their reach.
Somehow I must get free
and make it to the beach.

The ground is opening.
Sadly I know for whom.
I’m falling in a hole,
which will soon be my tomb.
