What is this thing?

Brown, broken, small

Standing alone

Amongst a forest of

Vibrant greens

And life


The walls


Like the

Decaying of flesh

Of a life

Taken too soon



In the woods

Trapped in a time

Long gone

Trapped in a world

Whisked away

With me

To a place

Never to be

Revived again
