Fossils in the Forest

Fossils in the Forest

A Poem by Wunderlich

Wrote this a few days ago. Eh.

I'm not looking for love
I'm looking to get lost
This forest is full of fossils

I'm not looking for change
I'm looking to escape
This world is worn by the dead

I'm not looking for north
I'm looking to be born
Buried beneath the dirt like bones

And no one leaves this forest
In one piece
They leave behind their bodies
Like dead leaves

I'm not looking for help
I'm looking for a shell
This time solidifies my mind

I'm not looking to feel
I'm looking to forget what's real
This forest is the only world I know

And no ones sees past these trees
Too clearly
They push against the foreign sun
To protect the shadows of their sons
I'm neck-deep in the ground but still young
The roots wrap around my limbs
Pulling me down it's finally done
I can sleep in peace in this fantasy
This forest of fossils that everybody needs

You did f*****g well!
The feeling that this peice projects is one I feel comfortable with so to speak
the feeling of not wanting help relizing your fucked up and saying its okay I dont want to "get bettter" but what truly is "better"?
Good job I love your work.

I love this. :) Is this...your perception of the world in general? It feels descriptive like my own writing, yet not quite in the same manner.
