Dark Wood of Error



It is dark, dank and reeking of wretchedness

Pulling to a place more fallacious than where you wander

Beyond lids with lashes curled in muted scream

Rayless, sunless, engulfed in bice

As bile slicks around your throat

In fear and ceasing wails

Aphotic and drenched with fear

That hangs ’round your heart

And swindles all gaiety

Cloaked in a malicious vert

And casing fragmented light

Jilted and drowning in torment
