Darkest of Willows By: J. L. Moreaux


Under the willow lies a darkness so steeping.
This sedimentary evil is constantly creeping.
The shades of dark call on the horror.
For the undesirable fight brings us to the scorer.

We stay out of their shadows as the wind creaks on.
Their leaves lash 'round as their evil spawn.
A wastle that weeps as the leaves are clawing...
The blood drips red for the willows have been sawing.

The screams emitted as they catch their prey.
One must stay far if they are to live the day...
The leaves will skin the body and scratch at bone.
Darkness stalks us as we are home alone.
