Forest


You beg me to the forest


The land of unknown trees


You tell me tales of wonder, of beauty beyond my means.


You grab my hand and push me into the forest of hanging leaves


The flowers look so beautiful, perfectly placed on the outside of trees.


We walk deeper into the forest, it grows darker yet I stay.


I walk behind you, I follow you, I have lost all other ways.


You lead me to a clearing I can’t see the forest or home.


It’s there you leave my by myself


Absolutely alone.

Sarah,

The metaphors and illusions to life are so real in this. Like many people, I know that feeling exactly. Thanks for posting this.
