There are woods behind my yard Eyes peering from the dark

Cries from the dark

There are woods behind my yard

Eyes peering from the dark

They sing songs of regret

Anguish etched in the bark

I know what they yearn

What their bellows mean

They coo with excitement

"We’ll be your family”

They don't understand what I've done

Or why they exist

They slither further into the woods

Leaving behind a few friends

They think I'll be swayed

“Play with us, once more”

But this time I do something

I've never done before

I name my fears

Then hang them out to dry

At their feet grow flowers

That I bring inside

My fears shout from the woods

I remember that endless rage

I almost felt sorry

When I cast them away
