The Woods

I looked into the thick, deep, dark woods.
Wondering what lay ahead, pausing I stood.
Branches sagged hanging onto their brittle trunks.
All was dead, dried to a crisp, the ground had sunk.
A soft voice whispered to me, it knew my sins.
Sounding so serene, innocent, inviting me in.
Branches began to move, yet there was no wind.
I sensed something evil, this place was condemned.

Feeling sad and lonely, it had lured me here.
It wanted me, now probing deep into my fears.
Tired of being in this world, feeling so alone.
The woods called, telling me to come home.
Now entering I ignored my rapid heartbeat.
Dead leaves, branches crackled under feet.

A cold breeze chilled me and caressed my face.
Sending shivers throughout, I kept a steady pace.
Suddenly stopped, spotting a tree with large black eyes.
Largest in the woods, branches reaching to the sky.
The eyes started blankly, set deep into the trunk.
My body went numb; I felt strange, almost dunk.
Hands now touched the eyes, feeling the hard bark.
Skin started to burn, itch and my sight went dark.
It laughed and told me now was the time to pay the toll.
My body exists no more; it consumed me, and took my soul.

The Bite

Look into my eyes let me hold you tight.
All your dreams can come true tonight.
Like anything in life there is always a catch.
Will the sacrifice be worth it you may ask?
What could be better then eternal life?
Who wants to deal with everyday strife?
Come closer to me I can help set you free.
A life with no stress of everyday worries.
My body is cold, and craves warmth to blanket my rot.
Eyes have become milky white but worry not.
I can smell your blood coursing through your veins.
Anticipating excitement, the taste of fresh meat slain.
You will feel the pain from a loving bite
Try to escape from me as you scream in fright.
I’ll sink my teeth into your soft supple skin.
Tearing meat away with my bloody grin.
Ecstasy sets in as we have become one
Now having my fill of warm flesh, now done.
My kiss will bring you a new kind of life.
Soon you will die but come back at night.
You may wonder now, what will you be?
Undead that never dies, a flesh eating zombie.
