Memories are forever.


The girl, known to me as Angela, has been killed.

Her soul is floating through the trees
Lost.

She was not expecting it
She was not expecting the man with the knife
To enter her peaceful solitude.

She didn’t have any time
To think.

Now, she is still lost.

The crows want to help guide her spirit
But she is scared.

She sees the dark shadow of the man
Following her
Through the dark forest
Again.

But, the crows.
They want to help
Guide her to where she rightfully belongs.

But she does not want to trust the crows.

She feels their clustered shadow as the killer.

She still senses the shadow.

She still feels it lurking behind her.

She is trapped in the dark forest trees.

Angela’s spirit cannot find its way out.

Will it ever?

I was looking through my literature book, and my eyes landed on a picture that grabbed my attention. The picture made me think of a story, so I wrote it in poetry form. I just made up the name 'Angela'. I liked the sound of it in the poem.

Thank you ! Right now in English we are studying gothic literature. And I wrote this poem and told my teacher about it and she said 'Wow! That is great!'.

I can see the gothic influence in your writing, you utilized it very smoothly.

It seems a lot of your poetry comes from pictures and photographs...that's pretty inspiring, not to mention unique!

After I wrote this, I realized it reminded me of Gothic literature.
