Forest

I see strangers dance through the forest

As I venture deeper into a muted world

Where most light dissipates

And shadows of swaying strangers

Become all that serve to aid me

In my journey into a great unknown

Where broken stalks

And mossy rocks come to be

The only guide to caress my feet

As I continue on my path-

A path where 

I am lost to the whispers

Of strangers

Deep in the shrouded trees-

That demarcate my journey to nowhere.
