Twilight Children

we misled your path, stones crack under your feet
little, round obstacles
tiny pearls of the earth

we gave you one trail, weaving it between our cold fingers
yarn goes forth
burying into your skin with cotton roots

we absorb your fear, it brims like a wild stream
sweat drops on your forehead
you look aside, seeing grinning darkness

we caught you in the net of branches
you hear how the woods speak?
silent whispers in the shapeless kingdom of shadows

we lured you into our trap, restlessly gloating
step after step, demise's laughter
enchanted delirium, touch of the twilight children
