Man lives in the future, dwells in the past, and forgets the present. - Devyn W.


The black-blue ocean water beats upon the boulders
Upon the sand, a shard of fire smolders
Night has fell in the dark beach
A shaft of light cannot reach
Lead the way to a forgotten trail
For our ongoing quest- its of no avail
Through the forest, winding our way
We cannot keep the beasts at bay
I hope we are not led astray
A mist spreads through the evergreen trees
I am aghast, I want to flee
Alas, no I must not back out
About our safety, I really doubt
Eyes catch sights, of tiny little faeries
Beady black eyes gleaming, she carries
With her all the secrets of survival
The Fae notice our arrival
In the land they claim theirs
Off our land! The Fae declares
Us group of children run fast
Right past
Wicca pentagrams of witchcraft
Clusters of faeries poke us with shafts
They say, "Vanish, dearies, don't be daft,
Out the forest up the peak
We jitter even as we speak
Venturing through is not for the meek
I settle down in the summit point
And sit between the joint
I wish to evaporate into thin air
Because I simply cannot bear
It.

Hi everyone! I wrote this poem after listening to a wonderful Gothic ambient band called Nox Arcana. The song was "Shadow Forest" composed by Joseph Vargo and William Piotrowski.The poem is about children who have to venture through a dangerous forest to complete a task.

If all else perished and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.

I love the atmosphere... the panic and the uncertainty and the strangeness is beautifully conveyed! Nox Arcana also happens to be one of my favorite bands.
