Late night forest trip

I was strolling through the forest

It was late at night and I was lost

The crickets chirping thrugh the night seemed to guide me though the path

The leaves flew in the air like bats

The lights from the houses seemed dimmed like dying lightbulbs

I could not hear much, other than the insects and the breezing wind arond me

As I marched closer to my destination

I could feel my feet sink in the marshy ground

I felt a spider crawl though down my back

I screamed like a girl and rushed through the forest

When I had made it to the streets

I had been both exhausted and pained

At least my house was a street away
