I followed the call of the screams
That echoed deeper into the forest,
Behind the mangled fingers and wooden beasts;
I could hear the cry of innocence
Begging to be rescued and taken to safety
From the demons lurking in the shadows,
Prancing around the forest,
Playing with the food it has been presented with.
The shadows grow closer,
Taunting and using my mind
To get closer to corrupt the innocence.
Lost in the blue horizon
Of your simple, innocent soul;
A quality the world no longer possesses
And one the world doesn’t deserve.
I wished you had not lived,
So you could have died innocent and clean.
Come to me my lovely poison,
Fresh and rejuvenating to the body;
I wish to consume you,
No matter the harm incurred.
I could not go on
Without you by my side,
For your animal skin
Made my primal animal quiver.
