She runs through
The dark depths of the woods,
She doesn't know
What she runs from.

Is there something chasing her?
Is she afraid to be alone?
Is she running away from life itself?
What is it she runs from?

She is lost,
She stops to look around....
There's nothing,
But dead silence.

Where is she headed?

She doesn't know.

The mist settles in
The depths of darkness
She hears noises.

Where are they coming from?

She looks....
But, sees nothing.

She is lost to the night,
She runs,
There is nowhere to hide,
The darkness scares her.

There is no light
From the moon
To help guide her way,
The wind howls through the trees.

She stops....
Her heart beats
Hard and fast.

As she looks around,
She realises she's lost.

Lost to the darkness
Of the woods forever.

This is a little frightening, but the intensity is brightening!
Lovely, Cynthia

Sounds like a very scary dream to me! But , as W.S. said,"...but dreams do pass, as shadows do." I'm glad you woke up to write more good poems. Michael
