Haunted Forest

The night is dark, the moon is low
A chill in the air, an eerie glow
The wind whispers secrets, unknown
A feeling of dread, I'm not alone

I walk the path, the trees surround
A rustling of leaves, a haunting sound
Footsteps behind me, but no one there
My heart beats faster, a rising scare

A shadow moves, just out of sight
A presence here, in the dead of night
I turn to run, but I'm held in place
A cold embrace, a ghostly face

The eyes of death, they stare at me
I'm trapped in fear, I cannot flee
A voice whispers, a deadly tone
"You're never leaving, you're all alone"

I scream in terror, but no one hears
My soul is lost, my fate is clear
In this dark forest, forever to roam
A victim of horror, never going home.
