Wrong turn

I have taken the wrong road

The curve ahead looks never ending

The shaft of light through cruel dark leaves

Claws waiting to drag me from my world

The play of light on tarmac, inviting

A voice from the shadows whispering

Turn back, yet my car will not reverse.

I am pulled forward past the light into liquid darkness

A black shroud waving through my headlights

A feeling of having been swallowed.

I wait to hear teeth snap

I close my eyes, no more than a blink

I am back where I started,

the light unchanged, the curve ahead inviting…
