The Forest in the Night

As the night falls
I wander in the forest 

Darker and deeper 

In the darkness,

An invisible seeker 
The snakes, animals, trees and bees, 
In the darkness of the night 

The silence of death,

All lay in peace and asleep 
I am safe, unseen, hidden

A retreat in oblivion 
I whisper to myself

Dear me

I am a girl lost and afloat 

in between worlds 
A traveller in the unknown 

With nowhere, and everywhere 

I call home 
A hint of warmth in the forest’s cold, 

Trees asleep, keepers of secrets and stories untold 
What lies beyond, this forest, I wonder within

Beyond this pious world, full of sin
