Black Wood

By: Chloe Emily

Moonlight beckons to its friends,

snakes start their hypnotising song

as they sharpen their teeth. 


Trudging through the crippling mud,

worms awaken from their slumber

as the sludge clings to the charred leather. 


The brittle bark disintegrates, 

the leaves abandon their comrades

as the flames ignite the memories. 


Raindrops of ash flood to the ground. 

Like ruthless predators, 

they swallowed everything in their wake.
