Bell Witch

Walk softly where she goes ahead

in search of deeper shadows

Whisper only of what cannot be known—

the sky above cries for lost days

and the forest grows close around the home of darkness

She walks among these trees

on paths unseen to ancient song

with many voices of wind and rain

spelling out curses in blood upon the wayward 

who come so close to the waiting mouth

and cannot see into the darkness

I don’t know why the legend of the Bell Witch fascinates me so much. Would love to visit the cave some day.
