It's quiet now
sighs felt being carried by the wind
some say she still lives here
that she placed her heart inside the mountain
and no one has heard from her in years
you couldn't leave it alone, you blamed it on age
boredom, chasing a feeling, selfish intentions now realized.
that you can only pick up and move on.
she's rooted here now, you know.
the cold wind is pushing you away
and you know you should leave
there's nothing you can do to help but that won't calm your soul
so what can you do?
walk away and wash your hands of it?
confess openly and repent at someone else's knees?
begging was never a good look for you
but neither was it hers.
and neither is this your forest
seeds are now laced with cyanide
the leaves are bright, but only because they are dying.
winter is coming and the forest will cleanse itself
cleanse itself of the past and harvest the dead
there are no sounds of wildlife
the forest knows you're here
the wind grows colder and the sun has shifted behind the trees.
some say she still lives here.
