Again

standing

standing at the edge

standing at the edge of light

darkness of the forest night

darkness of the forest

darkness

darkness of her heart’s blight

brightness of her soul’s might

brightness of her soul

brightness

branches arch o’er entrance

hands reach o’er head’s dance

feet dance toward mud path

toes curl inside leather swath

voices come from deep inside

voices come from deep

voices come

through trees hiding they confide

through creatures spying spied

messages travel limb to limb high

high vines tangle with rocks

blocking way they never stop

legs lead her clearly across

to only by sly vines be blocked

stymied hope by sylvan flock

mirage

mirage of deliverance

mirage of deliverance fraught

with triggered booby trap tricks

swears the next will open thicket

swears the best is next to this

swears the best is next

swears

jester in charge grins in his sin

watching her try again again

again she reroutes her spin

again she refuses to give in

again she refuses to give

again she refuses

again she

again
