A Path Into the Forest

April 8, 2013
A path into the forest,
Though unknown where it leads,
I feel this sense of longing,
I feel this sort of need.

A path into the forest,
Mysteriously dark,
Without a sound or rustle,
No singing of a lark.

A path into the forest,
Without a trace of life,
Trees looming ominously,
Silent, still: no strife.

A path into the forest,
Shivers run through my bones,
A moment's hesitation,
Then I'm lost in the unknown.

Awesome job! The only thing I recommend is making the first and third lines of the first stanza rhyme to match the rhyme scheme of the rest of the poem. Keep up the good work!
