IN THE WOODS SOMEWHERE
My skin was soaked.
I called your name 'til the fever broke.
When I awoke
The moon still hung.
The night so black that the darkness hummed
I raised myself.
My legs were weak.
I prayed my mind be good to me.
An awful noise
Filled the air.
I heard a scream in the woods somewhere.
A woman's voice!
I quickly ran
Into the trees with empty hands.
A fox it was
I spoke no words, no sound he made.
His bone exposed
His hind was lame.
I raised a stone to end his pain.
What caused the wound?
how large the teeth?
I saw new eyes were watching me.
The creature lunged.
I turned and ran
To save a life I didn't have.
Deer in the chase
There as I flew
Forgot all prayers of joining you.
I clutched my life
And wished it kept.
My dearest love I'm not done yet
How many years
I know I'll bear
I found something in the woods somewhere.
