Seemingly inevitable,

Yet all at once far-fetched:

Denial, refusal –

To believe that the flames

Burn brighter on the other side,

That ashes rebirth broken souls.



A forest –

Captivated in glinting light of moon,

Captured within:

Fearful town-folk as the shrieker shrieks

And the darkness bears its fangs.
