On a Path Darkly…

 

——————

Slithering forward on

a knife’s edge…

slicing a path through

virgin timber, and

leaving sap filled notches on

the sides of one particular

fearful strand of elms…

The road knew no boundaries…

no signs to tell

it to stop…

Just coursing through

night and day…

pulsing along to the beats

of once living hearts…

Pouring itself through

a maze of forest…

cutting and gashing

with the weapon of fear…

Till all within the darkening

woods trembled with a long

standing regret….

as vengeance was metered out

in a nemesis like precision…

deep within the

trees…

just after midnight…

on…

that freshly…

dark…

day…
