Enchanted Forest

Enchanted Forest

Falling in love with you

was like falling asleep

Slowly at first, then all at once

and waking into a dream

There is a lush grove,

resounding with the

dulcet songs of cuckoos

Warm sunlight sieves

through the canopy of trees

Walking on a bed of flowers

of myriad bright hues

I follow the eerie

and enchanting music

coming from the direction

of a cascading spring

But soon it turns murky

I trip on protruding branches

Broken twigs and thorns

pierce my barefoot soles

as I turn to look back,

the trail is gone

Now, the question is—

If there were a trail,

would I go back?

Would I want to wake up

from this dream,

so surreal that it seems
