The Heart of Darkness

I lie awake
Yet I am cold
Darkness looms
Forever more
I breathe my life
Into your air
Something stirs
Abroad somewhere
Feral sweat and blood
Put to sleep my soul for once
I am home at last
Through the trees
And damp forest mud
Lightning scurries through spirits across
The river placid
The savage beasts
All of this
I am to miss
The boat arrives
A living hell
Someone call me
Out of this abysmal well

You write so vividly with only a few words. It is truly a gift.
