VI) The Hideous Soul of the Forest

Words by MT.

Root snared fauna gnawing through their shattered limbs
In desperation abject they crawl towards the light
Their underbellies hanging out snagged amongst the thorns
Organic matter all absorbed this throbbing mass deformed

Flesh Burst Swarm Seed
A soul pulsates within its cells

The forest sings a sirens song to tempt them
The forest feasts upon the skin of myth
At its centre beats a predator's heart
Immortal and hypnotic ceaseless drone
Its veins expand beneath death fed ground
Branches reach to claim the eyes of fauns
Their barbs sink in and scourge soft tissue
Stricken in agony they bleat despair

Tendrils coiled around putrid corpses
Bones emerge from blood red soil

The fauns all stagger like drunken whores
Through rain soaked arches flesh adorned
Bowels as garlands line their way
They advance towards their fate
The cunt of Gaia open wide
Embrace eternal void of time
No fucking light penetrates her womb
The fauns all hanged around her tomb
