I think I've finally got a good horror poem going! For @contest_buddies prompt: clearing

A Safe Haven

The forest is dark,

The forest is dark, leering shadows waiting,

The forest is dark, leering shadows waiting, malicious yellow eyes

The forest is dark, leering shadows waiting, malicious yellow eyes Strange animals chitter,

The forest is dark, leering shadows waiting, malicious yellow eyes Strange animals chitter, spiders crawling,

The forest is dark, leering shadows waiting, malicious yellow eyes Strange animals chitter, spiders crawling, piercing ominous cries

The forest is dark, leering shadows waiting, malicious yellow eyes Strange animals chitter, spiders crawling, piercing ominous cries But still, I keep walking

The forest trail is barely visible

The forest trail is barely visible through the thick tangle of weeds

The forest trail is barely visible through the thick tangle of weeds Who knows what monstrosities

The forest trail is barely visible through the thick tangle of weeds Who knows what monstrosities these shadows

The forest trail is barely visible through the thick tangle of weeds Who knows what monstrosities these shadows will breed

The forest trail is barely visible through the thick tangle of weeds Who knows what monstrosities these shadows will breed But still, I keep walking

The inky black night sky

The inky black night sky is hidden by

The inky black night sky is hidden by the dense canopy of leaves

The inky black night sky is hidden by the dense canopy of leaves The moon's light barely pierces through

The inky black night sky is hidden by the dense canopy of leaves The moon's light barely pierces through the dim forest eaves

The inky black night sky is hidden by the dense canopy of leaves The moon's light barely pierces through the dim forest eaves But still, I keep walking

Because through the darkness,

Because through the darkness, something calls to me Something lurking deep inside me,

Because through the darkness, something calls to me Something lurking deep inside me, that I will finally see

Because through the darkness, something calls to me Something lurking deep inside me, that I will finally see So I keep walking

I know,

I know, just some innate sense,

I know, just some innate sense, that the forest will break somewhere

I know, just some innate sense, that the forest will break somewhere A clearing,

I know, just some innate sense, that the forest will break somewhere A clearing, open to the moonlight,

I know, just some innate sense, that the forest will break somewhere A clearing, open to the moonlight, I just know it is there

I know, just some innate sense, that the forest will break somewhere A clearing, open to the moonlight, I just know it is there So I keep walking

The clearing, I can see it,

The clearing, I can see it, so luminous,

The clearing, I can see it, so luminous, before the dark picks up again

The clearing, I can see it, so luminous, before the dark picks up again On the other side, is shadows,

The clearing, I can see it, so luminous, before the dark picks up again On the other side, is shadows, but I can see the bright forest den

The clearing, I can see it, so luminous, before the dark picks up again On the other side, is shadows, but I can see the bright forest den So I keep walking

I reach the clearing,

I reach the clearing, moonlight washing over me,

I reach the clearing, moonlight washing over me, dizzy with sensation

I reach the clearing, moonlight washing over me, dizzy with sensation This place,

I reach the clearing, moonlight washing over me, dizzy with sensation This place, this is who I am,

I reach the clearing, moonlight washing over me, dizzy with sensation This place, this is who I am, my very existence, my creation

I reach the clearing, moonlight washing over me, dizzy with sensation This place, this is who I am, my very existence, my creation So I stop walking

But something is still calling to me,

But something is still calling to me, something not in this safe haven

But something is still calling to me, something not in this safe haven Something that lurks inside the darkness,

But something is still calling to me, something not in this safe haven Something that lurks inside the darkness, shadows unshaven

But something is still calling to me, something not in this safe haven Something that lurks inside the darkness, shadows unshaven So I stop walking

But it still pulls,

But it still pulls, and something inside me wishes to go in

But it still pulls, and something inside me wishes to go in and embrace the gloom

But it still pulls, and something inside me wishes to go in and embrace the gloom I can't resist,

But it still pulls, and something inside me wishes to go in and embrace the gloom I can't resist, and I walk in warily, only to find...

But it still pulls, and something inside me wishes to go in and embrace the gloom I can't resist, and I walk in warily, only to find... my impending doom

But it still pulls, and something inside me wishes to go in and embrace the gloom I can't resist, and I walk in warily, only to find... my impending doom I have walked into the dead man’s tomb

The swirling dead,

The swirling dead, so many people that have been lured,

The swirling dead, so many people that have been lured, have been attracted here

The swirling dead, so many people that have been lured, have been attracted here To feed the dead soul of this darkened forest.

The swirling dead, so many people that have been lured, have been attracted here To feed the dead soul of this darkened forest. How foolish I am,

The swirling dead, so many people that have been lured, have been attracted here To feed the dead soul of this darkened forest. How foolish I am, how real my fear

I never walked again

Thank you!!! Hope you liked it!
