Poem written for "Dark Dreamscapes" for an image prompt
In To The Woods

In to the orange mist,
His wicked grin
Welcomes you in.
Gnarled trees whisper
In the dark,
Crooked branches catching
On your skin.

Eyes blinking in
The eerie light,
A chill descends
As all around
The darkness grows.

You did not heed
The warning,
Walked right
In to the woods,
And now
The river runs red

As his empty smile glows.
