What a blunder
Your biggest mistake.
The simple thought of escape
Placed you in a prison without bars
And without a forgiving atmosphere.

Whispers and murmurs
Crunching and creaking
The caw of a crow
A cacophony of warning.
It echoes all around
Mixed with the shivering of fear
And a beating of paranoia
A tremble of cold air
And the overhead of gray.

Time slips through your fingers
When only just a dash of it was needed.
If only you didn't skip that beckoning tree
The ideal ending
Would have been right there.

All you can do
Is cower under today,
As it's best not to think of tomorrow
When you're lost in the woods.
