Where Time Stopped

Something about this place feels broken

the trees grow close together

to hide these shadows from the world

A drop of blood in an endless ocean

where time once stopped and watched

a face with empty eyes 

and a knife to the throat of the world

hand on the pulse slowly fading

as the sky and the forest wept

The darkness untouched, the light of day far beyond

shadows growing always darker

as what was left behind is slowly devoured

Are humans hard wired to worship?
