Sweet child,
Promise me you won’t go too far
Deeper into the ominous forest
Further into the caliginous wild
Black as midnight
Sinister quite
Where the shadows seem darker than death
Lurking evil craving your soul

Tell me that you won’t go too far
Further into the realm of unknown
Where it’s home to the broken angels
Banished from heavens
To cavernous depths of hell
“Devils” we call them
Sweet child,
Don’t get too close
For you will feel familiar
With the darkest secrets they hold

After all, there’s no darker place than our own thoughts..
