In the Autumn Woods – Tanvi Jain

In the Autumn Woods

Torrents of wind howl in the air

Rushing past the trees bare

A cocoon of ruby and ochre envelops me

Trapping me inside for all to see

My pleas for help go unheard

The world carries on, not hearing a word

So I stop and suffer silently

Believing it to be my destiny

Now, all alone but not quite so

The days blurred yet time moves slow

The autumn woods are silent and eerie

The path I wander is dark and dreary

I carry on, knowing at heart

I have utterly completely fallen apart
